How we do Advance Design

And here’s how we do design for the steam systems underpinning successful organisations in fields as diverse as water treatment, processing industry, healthcare and renewable technology installations.

Whether we’re decarbonising a steam system, improving steam distribution efficiency or increasing your steam quality, the principles are the same:

Agree Scope and Deliverables

A site visit defines the scope and deliverables.

Site Survey

Information gathering and measurement collection

System Design and Equipment Selection

(including P&ID and Isometric Drawings)

The P&ID is the Piping and Instrumentation Diagram, a detailed graphical representation of your steam and condensates process system. It’s fundamental to every project we undertake, the basic 2D diagram – the definitive reference – for the design of your engineering system.

Preparation of Detailed Technical Documentation

At this stage of the design process, we prepare detailed technical documentation for your Engineering Design Package. This includes details of the project design specification, stress analysis, a design risk assessment and a proposed equipment schedule documenting all required equipment.

Presentation of Engineering Design Package

(includes equipment recommendations and cost proposal).

The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED)

Finally yet importantly, please note our expertise with PED. This directive applies to design, manufacture and conformity assessment of pressure equipment and assemblies with maximum allowable pressure over 0.5 bar gauge. If PED affects your organisation and you work with steam and condensates, we can help. Please ask about our PED Assessment services – yet another part of Advance steam consulting.


"Westons is a very environmentally conscious company. When Spirax Sarco suggested that installing RO (Reverse Osmosis) could save boiler blowdown water, we were very interested. The installation was quick and easy, and the RO system is compact. We’re very pleased with the results, and we may well consider using RO again in other applications."

— Jason Roberts, Westons Cider’s Engineering Manager
