Your plant may be running smoothly and at peak productivity, but are you missing opportunities in your steam system to meet energy efficiency targets?
Spirax Sarco can help you to create a sustainable steam system for the future.
All without compromising on system performance and safety.
Undertaking a steam system audit will help you identify improvements that will improve process efficiency, energy efficiency and even improve productivity. These are all compelling reasons to invest in an audit to review 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 from the boilerhouse, through to distribution and condensate return to identify energy saving and energy recovery opportunities within your processes.
Our steam system audit will help you plan for the future by demonstrating areas where there are clear efficiency gains and system improvements.

The medical centre discovered significant energy savings as well as improved boiler operations.
A healthy steam trap population ensures condensate is effectively removed and the usable energy is returned to your boiler feed tank for re-use.
Choosing the right condensate pump will help you to remove condensate effectively and safely, assisting its flow back to the boiler feedwater tank.
Recycling low pressure steam can help you to maintain cost effective and profitable operations with one simple solution.
There is much to gain from assessing your steam processes and equipment in your steam system. By undertaking a steam trap survey, you could uncover opportunities to recover and reuse residual energy and improve the performance of your steam traps.
As a fundamental component within your steam system, steam traps play a vital role in the successful day-to-day running of your system.
When steam traps are regularly maintained, your steam system will run smoothly, ensuring accurate temperature control, efficient heat transfer and effective condensate removal.
Your goal of saving energy can be achieved when you have the support of your local Spirax Sarco engineer. They are on hand to help you manage and monitor the performance of your steam traps in a way that works for you.
MillerCoors Brewery, USA
Review current systems to assess energy and water usage, to improve efficiency.
Steam trap survey uncovered opportunities in the brewery process to remove condensate.
The brewery saves 5,369,274 gallons of water and 305,894 therms annually.

Do you need to uncover energy savings in your steam plant?
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.
For plant managers, two things in life are certain: manufacturing uses a lot of energy; and that energy costs money. In fact, a survey by The Daily Telegraph and YouGov revealed that 28 per cent of manufacturing companies spend more than £250,000 a year on energy . That’s enough to make anyone’s eyes water.
Implementing an effective steam trap management plan, doesn’t need to be complicated. Lowering Carbon output, increased production and energy savings are all benefits you could achieve from regular management.
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.
Scottish food manufacturer Strathmore Foods has successfully enhanced its health and safety, process productivity, and sustainability performance after an audit of its Forfar plant identified a series of potential improvements.
With ever-increasing energy bills and ambitious emissions targets occupying your mind, it can be hard to find the time to unlock the full potential of your steam system.
