Steam is an odorless, clear gas which is formed when water is heated above 212º F or 100° C at standard temperature and pressure.  While steam has many uses, it is most often used in industrial facilities to transport heat energy.  Regardless of its usage, steam is an expensive commodity and conditions that result in losses are unacceptable.  This course will focus on the application of thermal imaging to help detect leaks within buried steam systems, and how to accurately identify leaking steam traps.

This course is a must for anyone who wishes to understand steam systems and how to utilize infrared thermography to help improve steam system efficiency and reduce unnecessary waste.

Learning outcomes

This course will enable you to:

  • understand steam and its role in industrial and commercial facilities
  • identify common sources for steam system leaks
  • recognize the financial impact of steam system losses
  • implement inspection techniques for buried and above ground steam systems
  • select and use appropriate technologies to confirm infrared data

Intended audience
This material is intended for all thermographers performing infrared inspections of operating steam systems.  Course is designed for in-house and contract thermographers as well as managers of infrared inspection programs.


R. James Seffrin is a Level III Certified Infrared Thermographer® and Director of Infraspection Institute located in Burlington, NJ.  Mr. Seffrin has over 40 years’ experience in performing infrared inspections for a wide variety of commercial, industrial, and residential applications. He is a co-author of several industry standards and is qualified as an expert witness on the subject of thermography.


The course price includes electronic copies of PowerPoint slide handouts.
