Eliminating wet or dirty steam can cut your energy costs, improve productivity and product quality, as well as reduce maintenance workload.
The scope ensures your steam system is EN285, HTM 2010, CFPP and food safety compliant using a HACCP approach.
Measuring dryness value and dryness fraction to assess steam wetness and its suitability for your steam plant.
Measuring the level of incondensable gases in your steam.
Monitoring of steam pressure and temperature to find potential problems with peak loads or other steam supply shortfalls.
Inspecting the physical steam system and its operation from boiler water treatment to condensate return.
Issuing a steam quality certificate and a full report with recommendations for maintaining or improving steam quality to raise operating efficiency of the entire steam system.
Clean steam generators boosts steam quality standards at Waterford Regional Hospital.
Applied engineering improves steam quality and process efficiency at a Hungarian pharmaceutical plant.
Steam is an incredible heat transfer medium and, it’s come a long way from its traditional associations with locomotives and the Industrial Revolution. Today it’s an integral, clean and essential part of modern technology. Without it, our food, textile, chemical, medical, power, heating and transport industries could not exist or perform as they do.
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.
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.
We list the 5 ways you can optimise your healthcare steam system
Surveys cover a wide range of equipment including steam traps, high limit control equipment and condensate pumps. Each survey first measures your system's current efficiency and identifies areas of improvement and the potential savings to be gained.
