The objectives of this project are; to study the failure of steam trap in plant (PPMSB) and determine the root cause of the problem. Previously, according to the data that had been collected, the numbers of failure rate of steam trap in plant are too high. The intention of this project is to analyze the existing problem of steam trap in the plant and finally come out with the solution to make sure the numbers failure rate of steam trap will be reduced. This is very important to increase the efficiency of steam trap to remove condensate, air and other non-condensable gases, while not losing any live steam. Besides, this project also will focus on the function and the working principle of steam trap. Area 5 (utilities) on Production Services Department (PSD) is selected as data references which is located at PETRONAS Penapisan melaka (PPMSB). Steam trap is the equipment function to trap the live steam and to remove condensate, air and other non-condensable gases. Basically there have three common types of steam trap which is Mechanical steam trap, Thermostatic steam trap and Thermodynamic steam trap. All of these types have same function but different characteristic and working principle. In completing this project some of the experiment and trouble shooting have been done in order to identify the steam trap failure. Some calculation also will be involved to calculate the piping arrangement of steam trap. Microsoft office Excel and other engineering software such as ANSYS will be utilized to analyze the steam trap data and to do steam trap simulation. Other methods such as research from the internet, journals and thesis will be used for reference purposes.
