STMM is the software platform for the management of steam traps. It allows to carry out detailed analyses of the performances related to periodic inspections and cyclical maintenance activities and is aimed at minimizing the investments-steam loss ratio.
The application is intended both for production/technical managers, who can easily check consumption and costs related to steam traps, and for maintenance technicians, who can quickly extrapolate the most critical tasks and check the monitoring activities by means of dedicated tools for interventions management.
Developed to provide a useful support tool for service activities and for results sharing, STMM is accessible by Internet or either intranet (with a dedicated server) and thus usable from any workstation. The use of relational databases for data storage ensures robustness of the whole system, absence of data redundancy and improved rapidity when carrying out complex queries.
The software allows the management of steam traps together with their correlated valves and the sheet of these components group shows the technical data, the calculation of leaks and the estimate of the overall energy costs. In addition, the application allows the automatic construction of the historical trend related to leaks and investments (made and to be made), thus giving the opportunity to view, also graphically, the trend of the saving over the time.
Thermography and ultrasound checks (together with tools for interventions management, installation drawings and on map localization) provide the user with the ideal set of resources: they allow to perform the most rapid identification and assessment of position, structure and operation state of each individual item.
The use of graphs and overview tables, automatically generated on the basis of specific search filters, guarantees an excellent tool for the immediate feedback on efficiency and energy cost of the components.
The historical analysis completes the set of available tools by showing the trend of the main parameters (energy costs / investments) over different periods.
STMM, has been developed also for supporting maintenance activities, especially by means of:
