Steam Trap Losses - What it costs you?

Experts assume that around 15 to 20 percent of steam generated is lost through leaking steam traps. With only one leaky steam trap (thermodynamic bimetal, DN25, system pressure 11 barg) approx. 22 kg of steam per hour and thus approx. 190 t per year are lost (with 8,400 operating hours per year). With production costs of € 35 / t, this loss adds up to around € 6,600 per year.
