Indicates any temperature below saturated temp for that pressure. Operators need to know their system so they won't be alarmed if the needle is reading just a little bit in the red. This can happen if there are pressure fluctuations or significantly windy conditions. Very effective if used by itself but exceptionally effective if bunched with others (such as on a condensate-return tree) as this allows comparison.
(Most intuitive): Indicates the temperature - in a green zone - within +/- 50 degrees of saturated temp for that pressure. There is little, if any, system knowledge required. (If it's not reading in the green zone, attention is required.) The green zone allows for system pressure fluctuations, changing ambient conditions, etc. (These are also calibrated with a simulated slight wind.) Very effective if used by itself and exceptionally effective when bunched with others (such as on a condensate-return tree) as this allows comparison.
Simply indicates the system temperature anywhere in the system. These can be used in modulating (as well as non-modulating) applications. Operators need to know their system and be comfortable using a steam table (provided with each gauge). Provides a much more accurate surface temp reading than an infrared device - especially on shiny stainless steel.
Each Gleason Instrument is NIST certifiable and 100% made in the USA.
The stainless steel worm gear connector and custom-fitted mounting cup ensures accuracy.
The Gleason Instrument™ is custom-designed to help identify a failed-closed, plugged, or partially plugged steam trap. It is important to remember that while the monetary losses of a failed-open steam trap can be significant (and are much easier to calculate), the costs of a failed-closed steam trap far outweigh them.
These high-quality instruments can have a dramatically positive impact on a facility - safety, production, and reduced man-hour requirements.
A couple of years ago, a major chemical manufacturer contacted us with a need to easily monitor, at-a-glance, the condition of their steam (specifically tracing applications). We developed a very simple solution that can not only be used for steam tracing, but also for many other saturated steam applications.
Our instrument is a very simple device that measures the surface temperature of steam piping or tubing and provides operators an easy indication of the condition of the steam - upstream of the steam traps and throughout the system. "Is the temperature where it should be for a given pressure?" Each instrument is designed for a specific saturated steam pressure range. It provides a very quick, at-a-glance, indication for non-modulating applications.
