THERMODYNAMIC STEAM TRAP “MOTORBOATING” (LEAKING) TIME SERIES VIEW

In this sample the disc no longer shuts closed as it should. Instead it is leaking steam. This is heard as a chattering sound and can be observed in the time series view.

THERMODYNAMIC STEAM TRAP STUCK OPEN TIME SERIES VIEW
If the disc is stuck open it will waste steam. The “open-close” pattern will be replaced with a constant rushing sound of steam blowing through.
