When upgrading or modernising your steam plant, you might want to take the opportunity to consider looking at the latest energy efficient steam technology. Making the case to take this step can be difficult. With Spirax Sarco’s expertise in steam, we can help you to create a compelling business case to help you establish the right systems that provide you return on your investment.
Undertaking a steam system audit is a beneficial process that aims to help you identify key areas where you can improve process efficiency, energy efficiency and even increase productivity. These are all compelling reasons to invest in upgrading or modernising your steam system.
As a part of the steam system audit, your local Spirax Sarco engineer can work with you to assess all aspects of your system including steam supply and distribution.
Auditing your current steam system will help you to build a business case for your future plans that demonstrate areas for efficiency gains and system improvements to different stakeholders.

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.
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.
Wholesale gas prices have seen unprecedented hikes in 2021 which has led to many energy companies folding under the pressure. It emerged that the UK’s sixth-largest energy company with 1.7m customers, is seeking a bailout to stay afloat and this trend is set to continue.
Steam provides the most reliable and efficient method of achieving effective sterilisation. It is a simple, fast and safe way to disinfect reusable equipment, but in order to be as effective as possible and reduce the potential risk of wet packs or extended sterilisation cycle times, a continuous supply of high-quality clean and dry steam is required. Compliant with major European and international standards, Spirax Sarco UK has developed a clean steam generator, designed specifically to deliver a consistent and reliable sterilisation process.
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!
To help a leading baby food manufacturer differentiate itself in a crowded market, the team at Natural Fruit & Beverage Co. embarked on a project to transition to clean steam generation for the packing process.
