Inefficiencies in a steam system can cause:

  1. Direct financial losses due to incorrect layout and lack of maintenance.
  2. Losses in production and quality of product.

Losses due to incorrect layout and lack of maintenance can result in:

  • Wrong or incorrectly sized equipment being installed.
  •  Non-recovery of condensate, and loss of live steam through leaking steam traps, joints and valve glands.
  • Lack of thermal insulation.

The reasons for the these losses can easily be identified, and potential losses calculated. Considerable savings in operating costs can be realized quickly through simple repair and maintenance.

Losses in production and quality of product can be due to either:

  • Lack of sufficient energy to maintain correct manufacturing parameters.
  • Variations in the temperature or humidity of the manufacturing process.

These losses can be considerable and difficult to ascertain, and will vary between industries and products. Let Wade Industrial help you optimize your process and reap the rewards of an efficient steam distribution system.
