How dashboard analytics are changing the way engineers oversee steam systems
30 January 2024
Unfortunately, manual inspections put engineers in a reactive position. And in many situations, the big catalyst for change or the need to update systems, is only prompted by a big loss or malfunction. That’s why it’s crucial to understand how monitoring and dashboard analytics can move you from reactive to proactive. Let’s look at how these tools can drastically change the work week for engineers overseeing steam systems. READ MORE
Evolution of Easy STM simplifies trap monitoring at scale
18 January 2024
DCO's Easy STM monitor is significantly smaller and needs only 25mm (1”) of exposed pipework, and can be more easily fitted near flanges, unions, and insulation jackets. The new model is designed for mass installation on drip and line traps and provides thermal, movement and environmental monitoring. Two immediate benefits include the ability to significantly simplify installation and reduce costs on lower value traps. READ MORE

Ushering in a new Easy Steam Trap Monitor generation
31 January 2023
Because of the intricacies and complexity of steam systems, it can be difficult to fit a monitoring solution, even a self-contained one, onto the pipework. Particularly in drip and line applications the space between components, unions and insulation is restricted and the free runs of pipe needed for installation become an issue. Notably, some wireless monitoring solutions on the market can require as much as 230mm (9in.) of free pipe for fitting. READ MORE
Remote monitoring fills gap left by shortage in skills force
16 December 2022
With the shortage in the skills force, engineers and plant managers are meticulous about prioritising tasks and time management. Consequently, this means that many crucial projects relating to machine maintenance, upgrades and improvements get put on the back burner. However, remote monitoring provides another set of eyes and ears on your equipment and machines. READ MORE
Applying a digital twin for energy savings verification for plant processes
22 November 2022
The specification sheet promises one thing, but what is the reality of equipment performance within your process? With real-time data, you can eliminate assumptions and reveal what is really happening. A digital twin takes account of physical conditions and reflects real-time key metrics. Monitoring multiple data points on individual equipment is key to setting up a digital twin for the plant process. READ MORE
