Project Information

Department Name Department of Technology, Management and Budget
Facility Name Cadillac Place 
Project Name Steam Trap Maintenance
Completion Date Anticipated mid-2020
Project Cost $0
Savings (in $) $Thousands
Impact/Significance 100 small steam leaks of 9 lb/h for 6 months at a unit cost of $10/1000 lb is a $39,420.00 loss
Project Summary Steam traps keep heat in a building heating system. Cadillac Place has 5,000 steam traps in the building. The local utility is offering rebates of $20 to test a steam trap and $100 to replace a leaking trap. DTMB has identified hundreds of bad traps and is systematically replacing them at a cost of $40 each with rebates and operational savings more than covering expenses. This project is lowering operating cost and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
