Customer Details

A Beverage Manufacturer in Indonesia.
Improper trapping practices and frequent trap failure, leading to waterlogging in the lines and high steam losses.

To achieve higher uptime of mainline traps through corrections in the steam system design and trapping methods.

Forbes Marshall conducted a detailed to identify problem areas, and corrective action taken accordingly :

Proper drain modules implemented in the steam distribution network.

Conventional thermodynamic traps replaced with 11 nos. compact module thermodynamic trap, model CMTD42M-F.
Increase in uptime of mainline traps from 20% to 100%.

Steam loss of approximately 1.5 TPD due to leakages averted.

Outlet temperature at Mainline 1 reduced by > 34 degC and > 50 degC at Mainline 2.
