With the solution adopted, each steam trap has external ultrasound and temperature sensors; 10% of them also have pressure and backpressure sensors. The SmartWatchWeb monitoring system collects all the information in one Website server that the personnel of the plant can access; additionally the energy service companies used carry out all the necessary repair work, and solve any incident detected by the SmartWatchWeb system in less than 24 hours.
Optimising energy of the network of steam trap stations of these Units has been possible thanks to the structural and functional features of the Bi-therm steam traps installed, because they have a pressure-balanced valve and an external adjustment device running. Therefore, the adopted solution is not invasive on either the monitoring or the repair work, so a considerable amount of money is also saved on the maintenance.
The results obtained in both Sulphur Units have been as follows:
