Steam has long been the energy media of choice for processes in industry and utilities for very good reason. If your process involves sterilisation, humidification and accurate temperature control, then steam is the most appropriate and efficient energy transfer method available even where relatively small quantities are consumed.
For example, hospitals mainly require hot water for heating, but also require steam for sterilisation. In this case steam offers both options and you may be surprised how efficiently both can be created. A modern, well designed and maintained steam system offers high operating efficiencies and low running costs for your process needs with a very attractive return on investment.
