Steam System Audit

Optimising energy efficiency from your process plant

In these harsh economic times those operating steam systems face tough challenges from increasingly stringent health and safety legislation, increasing fuel costs and a decline in specialist skills. Valveforce has the experience and expertise to address these issues through its Independent Steam Systems Audit.

A Valveforce Independent Steam System Audit is impartial and specific to you. We understand your requirements and processes and offer a scope of works suitable to your financial requirements.

The extent of our audit can range from a brief energy audit within the boiler house through to a complete appraisal of your whole steam and condensate loop all fully drawn up, inventoried and documented.

Each audit is designed for you following a consultation with Valveforce’s experienced engineers. Following the on-site work, a detailed and comprehensive report is produced and presented back to you.

Valveforce’s independent steam systems audit comprises of:

  • Typical areas for energy saving within the boiler house such as deaerator plant, heat recovery, economisers, pump VSD and flash recovery
  • Identification of areas for potential savings in the steam and condensate loop to eliminate costly flash losses, recover more condensate, and improve lagging and insulation
  • Discussion areas of where technology and new equipment can improve batch times and keep your plant running even more efficiently
  • A full photographic library of your process plant with the ability to have access to datasheets and O&M instructions when you hover a mouse over them
  • Full site drawings with existing and newly suggested improvements, along with a detailed valve component schedule and a recommended layout
  • Identification of any health and safety issues or risk to your site operatives or the public
