Your plant may be running smoothly and at peak productivity, but are you missing opportunities in your steam system to meet energy efficiency targets?
Spirax Sarco can help you to create a sustainable steam system for the future.
All without compromising on system performance and safety.
Undertaking a steam system audit will help you identify improvements that will improve process efficiency, energy efficiency and even improve productivity. These are all compelling reasons to invest in an audit to review your steam system.
As a part of the steam system audit, your local Spirax Sarco engineer can work with you to assess all aspects of your system from the boilerhouse, through to distribution and condensate return to identify energy saving and energy recovery opportunities within your processes.
Our steam system audit will help you plan for the future by demonstrating areas where there are clear efficiency gains and system improvements.
Medical Centre, USA
Develop strategies for minimising energy use
Complete an audit to find optimisation opportunities
The medical centre discovered significant energy savings as well as improved boiler operations.
A healthy steam trap population ensures condensate is effectively removed and the usable energy is returned to your boiler feed tank for re-use.
Choosing the right condensate pump will help you to remove condensate effectively and safely, assisting its flow back to the boiler feedwater tank.
Recycling low pressure steam can help you to maintain cost effective and profitable operations with one simple solution.
There is much to gain from assessing your steam processes and equipment in your steam system. By undertaking a steam trap survey, you could uncover opportunities to recover and reuse residual energy and improve the performance of your steam traps.
As a fundamental component within your steam system, steam traps play a vital role in the successful day-to-day running of your system.
When steam traps are regularly maintained, your steam system will run smoothly, ensuring accurate temperature control, efficient heat transfer and effective condensate removal.
Your goal of saving energy can be achieved when you have the support of your local Spirax Sarco engineer. They are on hand to help you manage and monitor the performance of your steam traps in a way that works for you.
MillerCoors Brewery, USA
Review current systems to assess energy and water usage, to improve efficiency.
Steam trap survey uncovered opportunities in the brewery process to remove condensate.
The brewery saves 5,369,274 gallons of water and 305,894 therms annually.
Are you preparing for a sustainable future?
Do you need to uncover energy savings in your steam plant?
Surveys cover a wide range of equipment including steam traps, high limit control equipment and condensate pumps. Each survey first measures your system's current efficiency and identifies areas of improvement and the potential savings to be gained.
For plant managers, two things in life are certain: manufacturing uses a lot of energy; and that energy costs money. In fact, a survey by The Daily Telegraph and YouGov revealed that 28 per cent of manufacturing companies spend more than £250,000 a year on energy . That’s enough to make anyone’s eyes water.
Solids, liquids and gases. No, this isn’t the start of a lesson in particle theory, but something far more relevant to you and your business, I promise. All three of these materials are likely to play a prominent role in your boilerhouse, but there’s one liquid in particular you might not have paid too much attention to until now – condensate.
Companies relying on processes driven by steam are being urged to manage their condensate more effectively after the launch of a new white paper which details the potential cost and productivity benefits on offer.
Running a plant room or energy centre certainly isn’t an easy task, is it? As if the complexity of a vast array of technologies all working together as one wasn’t enough, you’ve also got to be mindful of how running costs are rising and savings are becoming much more difficult to achieve. And that’s before we even consider the importance of emissions – or rather, the importance of limiting them.
We'll scale an audit to your needs, from assessing just a single plant room, right up to your entire steam system.
