The Oldest Paper Mill Still Operating in Germany Detects Defective Steam Traps with Digital Ultrasonic Testing Technology
Two apprentices at the oldest paper mill still operating in Germany received an award for their project ‘Steam traps as an important component for energy efficiency’ in a competition sponsored by the ‘Energy Transition and Climate Protection’ initiative for medium-sized companies in Saxony. Which traps are defective and how high are the costs caused by defective steam traps? The apprentices used technology from the company Sonotec to assist them in answering these questions. The digital ultrasonic testing device supplied them with answers, which surprised everyone.
