Steam system monitoring that never sleeps
Steam! It's everywhere and not just for railway enthusiasts. It's ability to transfer energy between source and consume means it continues to be a widely used in industry for everything from food and drink, chemicals, process heating, heating and hot water to specialist applications in pharmaceuticals and hospitals. Steam systems are usually energy intensive, often complex and frequently hard to monitor across a site. That's why DCO Systems has designed a suite of monitoring solutions for commercial and industrial steam users.
While steam functions well as an energy transfer mechanism, it needs careful management and monitoring to ensure efficiency, minimise costs and keep installations safe. Just one steam trap leaking for a prolonged period of time can generate significant waste if left undetected, and steam traps that have become blocked introduce problems of system damage and overall safety.
DCO System’s monitoring solution takes the monitoring techniques widely utilised today but makes them automatic, persistent and simpler. Our whole system approach maximises the number of components that can be monitored, and eliminates essential but tedious monitoring of whole swathes of equipment. Tired of sitting with your probe waiting for a trap to cycle? Automated monitoring doesn't sleep, doesn't miss an event and doesn't get bored. Pinpoint and detect problems in real time. Steam system monitoring also helps identify areas of improvement for carbon reduction, process efficiency and cost savings.
Our integration of remote sensing and energy harvesting technology finds a natural home in steam systems, the perfect atmosphere for our battery free equipment sensors. Harnessing energy from their surroundings found in heat, light, vibration, and ambient electromagnetism. Energy harvesting technology within our sensors is maintenance free and always available.
