Tyre manufacturer curing machine failure

Challenge

A tyre manufacturer in Thailand uses steam in the curing process of their tyres.  They were having to remove the tyre mould from the curing machine for cleaning every 1-2 weeks due to steam failure. The steam temperature is 200°C at a pressure of 15.8 bar. The cause of the steam failure was a torn piece of commercial thread tape that had entered the Y filter and led to the machine breakdown.
