Utility Plant Solutions proudly represents GEM Venturi Steam Traps along with Thermal Energy International heat recovery products and engineering, providing our customers with more energy efficient products and services.
Utility Plant Solutions tested several of the GEM steam traps in comparison with several other leading manufacturers of steam traps to verify the efficiencies and operating characteristics. Using ASME test procedures for measuring BTU's in the condensate, we were able to confirm that when using a new mechanical trap versus the GEM trap that the GEM trap consistently out performed typical mechanical traps with a minimal 5-10% increase in efficiencies.
Utility Plant Solutions has also found that the GEM steam traps are a great application where there are no dedicated high pressure drip lines. The function of the trap with the Venturi technology allows the trap to discharge with very little flash steam effect in the pumped condensate lines, making a great application for man holes, tunnels, and anywhere there is not a dedicated high pressure drip line.
