Proficient Technologies Complete Steam System Energy Audit Objectives
- Decrease fuel consumption
- Increase production
- Reduce maintenance costs
- Improve safety & reliability
- Extend the life of your system
Most steam systems – even new ones – offer opportunities to improve efficiency and reduce energy costs. A less-than-optimal design or operating parameters, or aged components can compromise any system’s efficiency.
Approaching each project with an open mind, with no preconceived expectations or system solutions, we identify efficiency improvement opportunities in your system by thoroughly examining all its elements. Your short-term and long-term goals and your priorities guide the audit process to get the results you want.
Starting with the most common sources of lost efficiency, such as steam traps, insulation (or lack thereof), unrecovered condensate, and steam leaks, we inspect your entire system for ways you can economically improve your system’s performance. Our experts explore methods to recover energy losses from stack gasses, boiler blowdown, flash steam, etc.
We then identify specific ECMs appropriate for your particular system, calculate the dollar value of your potential savings, and show you the ROI for each recommended ECM so you can determine which measures to implement.
Proficient Technologies, Inc. will complete the work to your satisfaction; or, you may decide to use your own resources to complete the recommended ECMs. In that case, we provide design criteria and equipment specifications for your vendors.
Our expertise and industry contacts ensure that you get the best return on your investment. Let us help you reduce maintenance, extend the longevity, and increase the productivity of your system with economical solutions.
