Venturi Orifice steam traps
Published:  04 May, 2017

INEOS reports it is now specifying Venturi Orifice steam traps on ‘drip leg’ and ‘trace heating’ applications at its plant in Cologne and says the decision to generally allow Venturi Orifice steam traps follows a trial carried out by Ines Zießau, a student of Energy Systems Technology, for her dissertation entitled “Evaluation and Performance of Steam Traps in the Chemical Industry” for her degree at the University of Applied Science. The eight month trial was overseen by Prof. Reinhold Altensen of the University and Dr. Stefan Krämer, Energy Manager at INEOS’s Cologne site. The trial proved it was economically viable to replace conventional mechanical traps with Venturi Orifice steam traps supplied by EBE ENGINEERING.
