The Cleaner’s Mart, based out of Los Angeles, is a dry cleaning and laundry equipment supplier and contractor. It primarily serves customers in the dry cleaning and textiles industries, and one of its specialties is in steam traps.
Steam traps are a type of automatic valve and are commonly found in businesses that use a lot of steam. They play an important role in the steam heating system, discharging condensates and non-condensable gases, such as air, while reducing steam loss. When steam traps fail, excess steam escapes, so more steam is needed. Thus, proper maintenance and replacement of faulty steam traps are important.
The Cleaners Mart has conducted steam trap surveys and replaced faulty equipment, as necessary, at many dry cleaners throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. By taking advantage of SoCalGas rebates, these businesses have been able to save money and decrease their energy use at the same time.
