Steam Museum given specialist bill of health

Steam Museum given specialist bill of health by Valveforce

Valveforce help get a steam museum open post lockdown

What was the problem?

Valveforce were contacted by a charming steam museum, which had been closed for a long time due to COVID and lockdown. The owners of the museum were looking to re-open and wanted to ensure that everything was up and running safely and efficiently.

How Valveforce helped

Valveforce were asked to visit the site and give the plant a specialist bill of health before it reopened.

Our Service Engineer visited the site to ensure it was ready for the grand reopening. He was able to:

  • Advise them on the safe and efficient running of the steam generator.
  • Upgrade the safety valve springs to the correct range
  • Adapt the steam traps, so they are all the same
  • Add lagging to the hotwell for better efficiency
