Steam and Condensate System Installation

With over 40 years’ experience in manufacturing EPS bonded bead cavity wall insulation, our client is committed to creating warmer homes by improving the standard of home insulation in all properties.

Our client recently expanded and set up a new manufacturing facility in Central England, due to the continued growth of their bonded bead cavity wall insulation product range.

The process of making bonded bead cavity wall insulation requires the use of a steam generating plant. It is essential to deliver steam at critical temperatures and dryness fraction, to ensure the quality of steam being served to the continuous duty pre-expansion plant is met.

With a growing reputation as steam systems specialists, Valveforce (part of the Force group) were contacted to design the steam and condensate system, as well as carry out the full steam design and build project.

The Valveforce team carried out a full site assessment, a detailed steam and condensate system design, plus all the necessary mechanical and electrical installation works. Examples of equipment used included steam bellow sealed stop valves, pressure reducing valves, temperature control valves and condensate steam traps.

During the installation of the steam boiler plant the Valveforce team carried out the oil feed installation to the burner, boiler water mains feed, blowdown vessel & safety valves vents and drains, ensuring that our client had one preferred installer and specialist steam system team on board.

Specialist attention was given to the critical temperature of the plant. Valveforce ensured that there was a carefully selected steam separator and condensate drainage, to ensure the driest levels of steam was produced.

Valveforce delivered the project on time and within budget, working alongside the site engineering team. During the build of the overall project there were a couple of technical areas that needed to be addressed, but we were able to offer their support and expertise.
