A Specialty Leader in Steam Generation, by James D. Acers Company Incorporated, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - August 18, 2008) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host James D. Acers Company as its special guest today as part of this week's "Industry Today" webcast. The James D. Acers Company specializes in evaluating and improving all components of steam generation and distribution systems for industrial and institutional steam systems. The professionals of the company remain up-to-date with the latest trends and newest products to best suit your steam system needs. The James D. Acers Company manages a master distributor network for Velan Incorporated, a leading manufacturer of bimetallic steam traps, float and thermostatic steam traps, piston-operated steam traps and thermodynamic steam traps.

Velan steam traps enjoy a long and rich history dating back to 1950 when they were first manufactured with the exceptional quality that is still apparent today. What helps set Velan apart from other companies is the use of stellite, which is welded into every valve seat in Velan's steam traps, which range in pressure capacity from 15 to 4,500 pounds. Stellite alloy is a range of cobalt-chromium alloys designed for wear resistance, making it ideal for use in the most demanding industrial steam applications. Steam traps designed and manufactured by Velan can last five to ten years, twice as long as traditional steam traps.

Velan's thermostatic design eliminates the waste of live steam and can save thousands of dollars in steam loss and even reduce the amount of steam production required. Each Velan steam trap uses superior technology designed to carefully release only undesired condensate, air and non-condensable gases.

James D. Acers has been testing steam traps for 25 years and currently tests between 10,000 to 20,000 steam traps annually. Using ultrasonic and infrared testing equipment, service technicians can detect plugged, leaking or blowing steam traps and tag them to perform a cost analysis on their efficiency. Maintenance or replacement of steam traps can drastically increase energy savings and reduce production costs, helping you realize a direct return on your investment, increase the efficiency of your heating system and reduce needless waste of steam and energy. Join Mike Acers, Vice President of James D. Acers Company, to learn about the company's commitment to customer satisfaction and helping you become more competitive.
