Quick wins for Steam

Quick Wins Lighting Logo
Rising prices for heating oil and natural gas means that you need to make sure your steam works as efficiently as possible and is well controlled.
  • Inspect steam traps regularly and repair malfunctioning traps promptly
  • Consider recovery of vent steam (e.g. on large flash tanks)
  • Use waste steam for water heating
  • Accumulate work orders for repair of steam leaks that can't be fixed during the heating season due to system shutdown requirements
  • Maintain lowest acceptable process steam pressures
  • Ensure process temperatures are correctly controlled
  • Remove or blank off all redundant steam piping
  • Ensure condensate is returned or re-used in the process
