Steam Trap Surveys

Unified Valve Group is now offering Steam Trap Surveys throughout Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan – Unified uses the TLV TrapMan system for conducting Steam Trap Surveys.

A steam trap inspection report can provide an overview of the steam trap population, faulty steam traps and steam leaks throughout your facility that can affect safety, steam loss/production and monetary loss. The steam trap survey also shows areas where further action should be taken to prevent damage to assets and piping.

Unified has a dedicated team that is TLV certified to perform Steam Trap Surveys throughout Western Canada. With numerous steam trap audits performed, Unified can conduct steam trap surveys across all industries from Oil Sands, Energy, Institutional & Commercial to Pharmaceutical.
