Decrease energy costs with steam trap monitoring

06 September 2011

Emerson Process Management is helping processing plants significantly reduce their energy costs with the Rosemount® 708 Wireless Acoustic Transmitter, an industry-leading combination of temperature measurement with acoustic “listening” that gives customers unparalleled visibility into the state of their steam trap.

About 20% of the steam leaving a boiler is lost through failing steam traps, so the production of steam is a significant operating expense for processing plants.

The Rosemount 708 Wireless Acoustic Transmitter provides constant visibility to, and accurate measurement of, critical steam traps without the effort of a manual inspection. This enables customers to dramatically decrease steam trap failures and reduce fuel costs by 10-20% each year.

Backed by Emerson’s proven experience in Smart Wireless field instrumentation, customers have instant visibility to all their critical steam traps through a non-intrusive, WirelessHART monitoring system. This system allows customers to monitor traps throughout the plant, even in remote and hard-to-reach locations, with greater than 99% data reliability. Real-time alerts identify which traps are failing and how they are failing, so customers can make informed decisions on how to act.
