Steam is valuable energy media used in countless industrial processes, applications include laundries, food factory facilities, laboratories. garment manufacturing, chemical and material processing amongst others. And there is a wealth of energy and cost saving potential based on the steam systems I have inspected in Asia.
Sadly many have been poorly designed which is a root cause for future difficulties and wasted energy. After fixing the system, setting up the right operations is next, to optimise the use of steam and condensate to suit the needs of the processes.
