DA TankAfter inspecting the boiler(s), and other equipment related to steam production in the boiler room, we follow the steam header and all its sub mains to their end. After the steam has reached the intended equipment and condensed, it is then important to return the condensate to the boiler room with minimal energy loss. This phase of the audit includes a steam trap survey and insulation audit.

Typical opportunities in the distribution system include, but are not limited to:

  • Faulty steam traps
  • Missing or inadequate insulation
  • Optimizing distribution pressure
  • Replacing PRV(s) with back pressure turbines(s)
  • Eliminating steam and/or condensate leaks
  • Recover and use flash steam
  • Return condensate
  • Vent condensers
  • Other proven conservation methods
