Your Industry is our priority

Steam is a must-have utility in many industries. Yet, while the basics of steam engineering are common, each industry places its own demands on a system.
Spirax Sarco’s industry specialists, understand the day-to-day needs of your sector. They apply deep industry know-how, using best practice from within the industry and even from other sectors where beneficial, so you can be sure you’re getting a solution tailored to your industry’s and your organisation’s needs.

It is our industry insight that ensures your steam system meets all the necessary guidance and regulatory requirements, as well as providing the highest process availability and safest operation, all with the lowest operational costs (OPEX).In food and beverage processes, for example, steam’s hygienic quality is critical, especially where it comes into contact with the product. Meanwhile, many pharmaceutical processes have stringent steam quality requirements or may demand clean or even pure steam.


Few high-profile food brands reach the consumer without steam playing some part in their manufacture. From blanching, peeling, cooking and dehydration to extrusion and pasteurisation, steam plays a part in many food processes.



A reliable supply of high quality steam and hot water is essential for brewing and distilling processes, as well as other activities such as Cleaning In Place (CIP), bottle washing, and the bottling or canning process.



Our long-standing relationships with pharmaceutical customers mean we have developed the expertise to help meet the requirements of almost any application. Clean and pure steam is an important element in pharmaceutical plants and we offer a full range of products to help companies comply with current Good Manufacturing Practice.


Hospitals & Health Industry

Reliable and effective building services, sterilization facilities and domestic hot water supplies are all needed to create the comfortable, well-maintained and hygienic environment that is vital in helping patients to get better.


Pulp & Paper

Steam plays an important role at many different stages of the paper-making process, from the large scale production of chemical market pulps to the creation of high quality coated stock. In corrugating machines, steam is used for conditioning and to provide the heat necessary in the forming and bonding processes.


Oil & Gas

Spirax Sarco's involvement with oil, gas and chemical companies spans most of the production stages. Steam and thermal oil are a vital part of many processes, from exploration and upstream production through to downstream processing and the production of feedstocks.


Sugar Refining

Spirax Sarco products and services play a major role in the sugar industry. They facilitate many of the production stages for both beet and cane sugar, including juice heating, diffusion, evaporation, crystallisation, syrup boiling and drying.


Energy & Power

We offer proven expertise and experience that can bring real value to your Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Cogen and Trigen plant and projects involving steam.



Steam is frequently used in waste treatment processes because of its excellent heat transfer properties compared to hot water and thermal oil. It has the added advantage of sterilising the material it comes into contact with, meaning that waste can be stored and handled safely before it is sent either to landfill or onto the farmer's field.



Waste Water & Sewage Sludge Industry

We provide our specialist steam expertise to leading technology providers in the UK waste water sector, where steam preheats sludge in advanced anaerobic digestion processes. Our process knowledge enables us to support our customers through all phases of these projects.


Other Industries

Your steam system is central to your business. Whether you require products, services or complete management of a project, you need to know your chosen partner is experienced, not only in steam but in your industry.
