What does the Advance Audit & Advisory service involve? Let’s dig deeper into what you can expect:
Knowledge and understanding are powerful. Without fully understanding your steam and condensate system we can't possibly advise on a solution to meet your needs and help you do better business. So we take that deep dive into your steam and condensate system.
Once we understand the workings of your steam and condensate systems, we can calculate key performance parameters to inform carefully considered recommendations.
How efficiently is your boilerhouse currently creating steam? We’ll find out. Then we can benchmark your boilerhouse efficiency and quantify your steam generation. Next, we’ll identify cost savings and make informed recommendations for system enhancements. Advance audits are much more than just box-ticking exercises. What’s more we can support you in revolutionising your steam generation efficiency with our range of Target Zero solutions including electric high voltage generation and balancing with decarbonisation and sustainability in mind.
You don’t need us to tell you why thermal energy is important, but we can help you make best use of it. As above, when we do a thorough energy audit, we’ll look closely at thermal energy management in your organisation and recommend future improvements.
Unwavering commitment to safety and compliance has always underpinned everything Spirax Sarco does.
There’s a right way to design and install a steam system and there are the other ways. The latter bring all kinds of short- and long-term consequences. These range from minor annoyances and cost inefficiencies to major operational and safety issues.
That’s why we’ve built our business on strict adherence to industry best practices for steam and condensate systems. And why Advance steam consulting ensures that everything we design, engineer and install always follows current best practice.
That’s what we do, but what does it mean for you? Here are the key outcomes you can expect from Advance steam consulting.
Picture your steam and condensate systems. Now think about the techniques used to identify best practices to serve as benchmarks for measurement and management of energy efficiency improvements that meet your KPIs. KPIs.
Imagine tuning a high-performance car: now imagine the benefits of doing the same to your steam systems.
Despite growing use of renewable and sustainable energy resources, rising energy prices and reduced overall available energy are with us for the foreseeable future. Setting and achieving energy reduction targets isn't just good for the environment, your carbon reduction commitment and your corporate social responsibility (CSR). It’s also good for your energy focused KPIs and bottom line.
Anything that cuts your steam generation cost is worth looking into. Demand-side reduction for your energy centre is an obvious way to mitigate rising costs. The Spirax Sarco Advance steam consulting audit is your gateway to improved performance in this important operational area.
At the same time, we’ll look closely at possibilities for energy savings initiatives and ways you can harness the power of advanced heat recovery. This is great for your eco-footprint. It could also be an easy win on the way to a stronger bottom line. We’re also experienced with Automatic Monitoring and Targeting Systems (AMTS) for steam systems…
How will you develop your steam, thermal energy generation and decarbonisation strategy? An important part of the Advance audit involves development of a roadmap to give essential understanding of your future direction, as well as better planning and strategy certainty.
As part of Advance auditing, we’ll look at effective ways to future-proof your steam and condensate systems. Of course, we’ll also maintain awareness of the imperative to minimise utility consumption. With our professional input today, you can reduce costs in future. We’ve helped organisations like yours with this for over a century.
We all want to improve productivity. Advance consulting helps you do this with your steam and condensate. Your Advance audit gives vital clues about achieving this.
Safety is one of your top priorities – and at the forefront of everything we design, make and install. No wonder safety – and ways to improve system safety is a priority for every audit.
Finally, here's a brief summary of how we deliver the Audit & Advisory part of Advance steam consulting:
It all adds up to the perfect understanding needed to underpin recommendations and implementation that will transform your steam and condensate systems for the future.

Report submission and presentation of findings and recommendations
“When Spirax Sarco carried out the original survey, they put in a conservative estimate of savings, and we ended up saving much more. That helped us decide to opt for the three-year contract. If the new savings estimates are correct, the contract offers excellent value for money and should help us reduce our carbon emissions by 200 tonnes a year.”
