Resolve a water hammer issue to reduce a health and safety risk
Provision of steam expertise and condensate drainage solution to optimise steam system design
Elimination of water hammer issue and productivity of machine increased, due to a 15% time saving in heating and cooling processes, with energy and water savings delivering a more sustainable solution.
Canlar Mekatronik are a global force in designing and building machines for the textile industry, especially fabric dyeing machines. Their forward looking strategy has seen them expand their production facilities, introduce high end machinery and invest in research and development to create innovative sustainable technologies.
Canlar Mekatronik contacted Spirax Sarco for support with a water hammer issue one of their customers had been facing. Water hammer can be a common but easily resolved problem within steam systems, however left unchecked it can lead to serious Health and Safety issues, along with secondary issues relating to damage to the system, resulting in increased maintenance and plant downtime along with a shorter equipment lifecycle.
Working in partnership with Canlar Mekatronik, Spirax Sarco Engineers used their unrivalled steam expertise to carefully examine the system. They gave valuable technical advice on how to eliminate the safety related issues caused by water hammer and collaborated with Canlar’s engineers on how to optimise the steam system and enhance its performance.
By adopting the changes recommended by Spirax Sarco, the performance of Canlar Mekatronik’s fabric dyeing machine improved significantly with a 15% time saving in the heating and cooling processes.
This has delivered significant productivity improvements and importantly savings in energy, waste and water have resulted in a more sustainable solution. This is a key driver and focus for Canlar Mekatronik who continuously strive for the development of environmentally friendly products and production processes.
These shared environmental and social priorities between Canlar and Spirax Sarco provide a strong platform for an enduring business partnership.
Spirax Sarco are true experts in steam. Their advice has resulted in an impressive increase in productivity for our machine, giving a more sustainable and reliable solution that gives long term value for ourselves and our customersCanlar Mekatronik
Are you using the correct grade of steam in your process? Using an inappropriate grade of steam for your process(es) can be a source of contamination.
Steam is an incredible heat transfer medium. Every kilogram of steam contains around 2200 kj of condensable energy. That’s 26 times more usable energy than a kilogram of water in a typical heating system based on flow and return temperatures with a delta of 20oC.
Spirax Sarco has launched a new steam and thermal energy audit as part of its service portfolio.
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.
Choose a steam system audit to benchmark your overall system. We'll scale an audit to your needs, from assessing just a single plant room, right up to your entire steam system.
Spirax Sarco and The Sanmartin Group in Argentina are developing and delivering cost savings and energy efficiency as a part of their collaboration.
