Choose a steam system audit to benchmark your overall system. We'll scale an audit to your needs, from assessing just a single plant room, right up to your entire steam system.
Surveys are typically part of the audit process and may also be recommended in an audit's report.
Today, our customers face tough challenges, from rapidly rising fuel prices, to tightening safety and environmental legislation, to shortages of specialist skills. As an experienced and knowledgeable expert in steam systems, Spirax Sarco can help address such issues associated with their plant through our Steam System Audits.
Audits are tailored to your process or application and your budget. They can include the complete steam distribution loop, starting with the water treatment plant, right through to process applications and condensate return. We can scope an audit to fit your needs, for instance it can be focused on energy efficiency, health & safety or best practice.
We are able to analyse the entire system and its operation. Each audit is designed to your particular requirements and conducted by experienced Spirax Sarco engineers. Following the on-site work, a detailed and comprehensive report is produced and presented back to you.
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!
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.
Running a plant room or energy centre certainly isn’t an easy task, is it? As if the complexity of a vast array of technologies all working together as one wasn’t enough, you’ve also got to be mindful of how running costs are rising and savings are becoming much more difficult to achieve. And that’s before we even consider the importance of emissions – or rather, the importance of limiting them.
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.
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.
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.
