INTRODUCTION
BRINGING ENERGY DOWN TO EARTH
retaining and transferring data, including moving data to a
word processing program.
Any company that is energy conscious is also environmentally
conscious. Less energy consumed means less waste, fewer
emissions and a healthier environment.
TRAINING FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION
In a recent survey of plant engineers, plant managers and
key maintenance engineers, 89 percent said that there will
be a greater need for training in the years ahead. One of the
primary areas of training is in the arena of steam trap and
steam system maintenance because of the great potential to
save energy and money.
In short, bringing energy and environment together lowers
the cost industry must pay for both. By helping companies
manage energy, Armstrong products and services are also
helping to protect the environment.
Since 1900, Armstrong has been in the business of conserving
energy as it applies to steam operated machinery and
equipment. Our developments and improvements of steam
trap design and function have led to countless savings in
energy, time and money. In an effort to share and expand
this steam conserving knowledge, we at Armstrong have
developed Software Program 1. It deals with the sizing and
selection of steam traps for a wide variety of applications
and industries.
Armstrong conducts educational Steam Energy Seminars
and also offers customers a library of training materials.
These resources include video tapes, handbooks, sectional
models, flip charts and more. Most are available at no
charge.
For more information, request a copy of Bulletin No. 815
“REFERENCE GUIDE TO ARMSTRONG’S TRAINING AIDS
— A descriptive listing of various training aids produced by
Armstrong to facilitate the training of people responsible for
steam energy conservation”.
ARMSTRONG SOFTWARE PROGRAM 1
Unnecessary steam trap costs begin with sizing guesswork.
When it comes to the sizing and selection of steam traps,
guesstimates add needless costs - initially and at every
stage of a trap’s service life.
REPLACEMENT DISKETTES
If you need a replacement diskette, or if there are others in
your company who are responsible for steam trap sizing and
selection, we will be happy to send Armstrong Software
Program 1 at no charge. Please send their name(s) and
address(es) to the following address:
Most incorrectly sized steam traps are oversized. That
means you pay for more trap than you need to do the job.
What’s more, an oversized trap works harder, accelerating
wear. And, when it fails, a trap too big for the job wastes more
energy than one that’s correctly sized.
