No steam system is complete without this crucial component 'the Steam Trap'. This is the most important link in the condensate loop and the steam system, as it connects steam usage with condensate return. By definition, a steam trap 'purges' condensate, as well as air and other incondensable gases, out of the system, allowing steam to reach its destination in as dry condition as possible to perform its task efficiently and economically. It is important that a steam trap must trap or hold back steam and not allow it to pass along with condensate or air. If not maintained or applied properly, it can result in significant energy wastage.

This 3-hour online course provides an overview of this essential component and discusses the operation, selection, installation and maintenance criteria of various steam traps for different applications.

This course is aimed at mechanical, chemical and process engineers, system design engineers working in power, oil and gas, chemical, metal and mining, manufacturing and engineering industries, energy auditors, operational and maintenance personnel.
