Steam systems are typically used used for process and building heating. It is vital
that the steam system is set correctly to match the sites current requirement and
Do you know your sites process and building heating steam requirement? Have you
carried out and acted on the findings from a steam trap survey in the last 2 years?
If the answer is NO to these questions then your site is definitely wasting significant
quantities of energy. Savings between 10% and 30% can be achieved.
How can Enerjon help you?
Our results have shown up to 30% can be easily and quickly achieved with minimal
expenditure. Think of the steam system as an energy balance - what you take out
has to be put in, therefore control it well to take less out and you will put less
It is vital to realise that the boilers are not an isolated piece of site equipment
but part of the integrated site, at Enerjon we do not improve the efficiency of the
boilers in isolation we review their role in the whole site facility. By going this
extra, vital, step we can ensure that the site achieves the best long term solution
and the most efficient setup.
Enerjon works with site personnel and specialist contractors to perform the following
assessments and improvements for each site:
Review site process and heating steam requirements, compare to the current setup
Review the boiler controls, fire rate, flame condition, condensate return rate and
boiler water treatment effectiveness.
Review site steam distribution system for leaks and lagging effectiveness / defects.
Using data from the above assessment work Enerjon will work with the site personnel
and specialist contractors to:
Commence an improvement plan in the boiler house, this will introduce new settings
to site requirements, introduce low cost upgrades into the boiler house and improve
the operational control over the boilers.
Working with site engineering and approved contractors to work through and repair
the identified site steam leaks and lagging improvements.
Monitor the site gas reduction, produce reports highlighting the improvement progress
and feedback to the workforce.
Set up regular improvement groups to discuss current and future changes, display
the information and improve site awareness for energy reduction.
Develop a site improvement list to work towards using capital investment, this would
capture the larger cost items such as fitting flue gas economisers, boiler hot wells,
variable feed valves and improved sequence control for multi boiler sites.
