Steam Blankets and Wireless Monitoring
While many insulation options exist, it is important to ensure that the methods used at your facility are as efficient as possible. Just as the services offered by your business are quite different than another similar business, LSS’s insulation methods offer unique solutions to
problems that existing methods suffer from, especially with an aging system.
Insulation is an important part of every buildings operations. By maintaining quality insulation you not only save money but also ensure that you are running at peak efficiency.
Heat Exchangers, PRV valves, Steam traps and more are often neglected and not insulated. With applying the right types of steam blankets you can find a surprisingly large savings!
We perform a comprehensive analysis of your steam system and custom make each insulation effort specifically for where it is intended. This ensures that the insulation installed by LSS is the most efficient as possible. We also catalog and provide reports of completed work.
We conduct a system wide analysis and can identify areas where your existing insulation is in need of repair, or places that may need insulation that are currently bare. Thermal imaging technology is an amazing tool for finding problems that the naked eye can miss.
Steam trap failures cause you to lose money. Leaking traps increase steam costs and blocked traps can cause pipe damage. Instead of time-consuming manual audits, our Wireless Steam Trap
Monitor (WSTM) allows you to remotely monitor steam trap health year round. The WSTM non-invasively attaches to any steam trap in your steam distribution system. Use our server to view the overall health of each trap from your PC or existing building
or plant automation system.
Our sustainability department works directly with grant agencies to provide you with the best possible grants to help defer the costs of completed projects. Most insulation projects are available for some type of grant, and we will work to get it for you!
If not properly manufactured or installed steam blankets simply redirect heat creating what we call “the volcano effect”. This can be caused by many things, however, in most cases it is due to weak straps, difficult to work with blankets (when removing and reapplying), or simply loose fitting blankets. Our custom blankets solve all of these problems.
A building envelope is essentially the barrier that separates the inside of your facility from the outside. Any leaks in this envelope such as window seals, fractures in walls, or cracks at the foundation and roof can lead to significant long-term problems. Identifying these problems in your facility can protect you from future water and mold damage, and vastly improve energy efficiency and air quality.
“Activities in windows and building envelope will focus on technologies such as highly insulating materials and systems, and methodologies and analysis tools for measurement and validation of building envelope performance …”
