STEAM & CONDENSATE SYSTEM AUDITS
A facility can’t truly optimize its steam system without a detailed understanding of operational and financial performance. Get a clear, current, and comprehensive picture of your efficiency and system health with a comprehensive plant-wide steam and condensate equipment audit that benchmarks performance and presents options to improve energy utilization, reduce heat loss, lower operating costs and maximize process throughput.
We will also show you where automation can be integrated into your plant, providing you with more transparency into everyday operations, system throughput, and areas where attention may be needed to avoid downtime.
System audits can include specialized recommendations for the use of steam trap automation solutions from Everactive, designed and engineered by Steam Solutions specifically for you.
Our proven steam system audits are executed by focused specialists who uncover ‘hidden’ opportunities for improvement. The auditing process includes an extensive site visit by a Steam Solutions engineering team that performs the following tasks:
- Advanced field measurements and observations
- Steam flow and condensing-rate modeling
- Equipment specification development
- Line variable observations
- Automation equipment evaluation
- Comprehensive steam trap survey
After the initial audit is complete, our team prepares an objective report covering key performance metrics, opportunity costs, and a detailed proposal of recommendations for system improvement. This includes a line-by-line scope of improvements, repairs, additions and modifications needed to optimize the system for maximum ROI.
From simple repairs and replacements to rethinking steam allocation, deploying an advanced automation solution, or simply replacing failed or failing components—these audits serve as a roadmap for ongoing, optimized efficiency.
Because their guidance inevitably leads to millions of dollars in annual savings and improved system production, these audits pay for themselves very quickly by identifying and quantifying needed areas of improvement.
Steam and condensate system audits include the following benefits:
- SYSTEM PERFORMANCE BENCHMARKING
- SYSTEM-WIDE PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION
- ENERGY SAVINGS OPPORTUNITIES DOCUMENTATION
- MISTAKENLY PLACED OR OUT-OF-SERVICE EQUIPMENT IDENTIFICATION
- PROCESS EFFICIENCY/PRODUCTIVITY ENHANCEMENT
- IMPROVED SYSTEM RELIABILITY
- LOWERED OPERATING COSTS
