One-day steam seminars

Condensate technology with the mobile testing station

One-day steam seminars, divided into a theoretical and a practical part with applied demonstrations at the mobile testing station of GESTRA.

The steam seminars are geared to the interests of technical staff working for engineering companies, plant engineers, interested specialists and personnel responsible for plants where steam and pressure are produced and transported.

The seminars usually take place in four different places in Switzerland: in the North, the East, the Mittelland (centre) and the West (the latter in French).

The seminars will be held on 24 - 28 June 2024. Advance reservations can be made by e-mail.


Theoretical part:   (Morning)

  • Fundamental principles of steam and condensate systems
  • The heat carrier steam
  • The tasks of a steam trap
  • Steam traps systems and concepts
  • Steam savig measures
  • Troubleshooting

Practical part:   (Afternoon)

  • The function of all steam trap systems
  • Behaviour in difficult circumstances, for example operations at part and lower loads
