Spirax Marshall Receives the CII Innovative Energy Saving Product Award

Pune, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, November 26, 2009 -- (Business Wire India) -- The Wireless Trap Monitoring System, from Spirax Marshall - a Forbes Marshall group company, has been recognized as "Innovative Energy Saving Product", at the CII 10th National Award for Excellence in Energy Management 2009. The event was organized by CII - Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre on the 19th and 20th of November 2009, at Chennai.

This innovative product has been developed for the first time in India and is a network for monitoring the health of steam traps at dispersed locations in a plant. This product has application in all process industries such as Refineries, Pharma, Paper, Rubber, Textile, etc., where steam is used for heating. In an installed base of more than a million process steam traps, leaking traps result in a loss of thousands of tonnes of steam annually, which if saved is equivalent to meeting the needs of 500 process plants for free.

This adhoc self adjusting wireless network of traps avoids cabling to remote trap locations. It's centralized web-based Graphical interface reduces operator intervention and makes data available on the internet at any time. It helps monitor and report the overall health of traps in a plant. It broadcasts an alarm when there is a steam leak in a trap or when the trap is water logging and not ejecting condensate. It's handheld communicator helps to configure, download and troubleshoot the network and application data. Above all, it has a short payback period and does not need any expensive software licenses to operate.

It does online data analysis and intelligently generates reports on steam loss, monetary loss, deviation from benchmarks, etc. This enables the user to take immediate action and decisions on the existing plant condition. Unlike its wired counterpart in the market, it eliminates the need to physically go up to each trap and check the condition.

With the rising energy costs and the problem of global climate change, the efficient use of energy is imperative. The wireless trap monitor can produce steam loss calculations, measure energy savings, the direct monetary benefits and help a plant achieve its energy efficiency goals.
