Boiler and Steam Systems

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 well maintained.  


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 in!


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 and design.
  • 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.
