University and College steam heat systems benefit tremendously from Steam Trap Monitoring
Reduce energy costs, plan maintenance efficiently and meet sustainability standards.
Many Universities and Colleges have hundreds or even thousands of steam traps.
Universities and Colleges often have sprawling facilities that are efficiently heated with steam. The problem is they have steam trap failure rates in the same range as all industries - 8-15%. Their infrastructure was carefully constructed to make areas safe for students which means that pipes run under buildings and can be very inaccessible for inspections.
When energy costs were low and sustainability wasn't such a focus this worked well. Steam trap failures were left untreated for months at a time and the system continued to deliver heat in a satisfactory way. Now that is no longer viable. Heat is one of the highest costs at many campuses. Setting themselves as models of sustainability is a goal for most educational institutions.
Leading Universities and Colleges are looking for modern sustainable solutions to help them reduce energy costs, green their facilities and steam trap monitoring is definitely on their radar.

Knowledge is the key
“We have traps in tunnels and even buried underground. Inspections were an annual headache.”
– Maintenance Manager, large university
Universities and Colleges are held up as role models of innovation. Spearheading this type of technology comes naturally to leaders of the pack. Even in cases of fairly low psi, the Pulse solution pays for itself extremely quickly making it easy to work towards Net Zero goals while saving money and reducing safety risks to maintenance teams.
Pulse steam trap monitors are easy to install, no matter the pipe size or location of the trap. With the monitor in place, the system provides industry-leading accuracy by sensing both acoustic and temperature readings. Trap failure alerts are sent directly to the dashboard and mobile phones of maintenance crew, so they know exactly what needs to get fixed.
With government rebates for sustainability initiatives coupled with the savings in operational costs, our steam trap monitors greatly improve your bottom line for years to come.
