Plant operators increasingly susceptible to budget constraints and pressure to reduce carbon emissions.
•Managers and operators needing new ways to increase productivity and boost their business’s bottom line.
•Your quick-start guide to boost boilerhouse efficiency details five useful optimisation techniques.
With plant operators under increasing pressure to reduce operating costs and improve productivity, the launch of a new guide is promising to help boost efficiency right from the heart of the boilerhouse.
Authored by steam expert Chris Coleman, the new quick-start guide aims to support boilerhouse managers in understanding their plant or energy centre and discovering new ways to improve their energy consumption.
Your quick-start guide to boost boilerhouse efficiency identifies five useful techniques to help operators make better use of energy in the boiler system. Spirax Sarco’s guide explains how reverse osmosis (RO), automatic total dissolved solids (TDS) control, flash steam recovery, exhaust gas heat recovery and steam system conditioning, can all be introduced to ultimately boost a business’s bottom line.
“By knowing your boilerhouse and understanding the small adjustments that can help support efficiency, operators will be well-equipped to use their boilerhouse to its full potential,” says Chris. “This simple guide aims to help operators understand their systems better and identify new ways to save energy.
“RO, for example, can remove 98 per cent of all salts, which in turn can reduce potential scaling and boiler blowdown as well as reducing water losses and associated costs for maintenance, water treatment and fuel. Our guide has been created to show operators how this, along with other simple adjustments, can really help boost boilerhouse efficiency.”

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.
Whether or not you’ve already read my blog which defines what condensate recovery actually is, you’ll no doubt be aware of the growing need to make your process more productive. After all, energy costs are rising and ambitious carbon emissions targets are coming into play – as if we didn’t have enough on our plates already!
If you’re involved in the planning, management or upgrading of steam boilers, then you may have come across the term ‘steam fundamentals’. But, what does this mean and why is it important for you as a plant manager?
