Steam System

Steam provides a means of transporting controllable amounts of energy from a central, automated boiler house, where it can be efficiently and economically generated, to the point of use. Therefore, as steam moves around a plant, it can be considered to be both the transport and provision of energy.

For many reasons, steam is one of the most widely used commodities for conveying heat energy. Its use is popular throughout industry for a broad range of tasks from mechanical power production to space heating and process applications.

Typical areas to improve efficiency in steam systems

  • Combustion Efficiency
  • Boiler housing heat loss
  • Leaks
  • Distribution insulation
  • Steam Traps and Strainers


Steam system audits typically focus on finding any steam or heat losses and verifying the correct operation of steam traps and strainers. Steam losses are leaks where steam actually escapes the system. Heat losses are excessive reductions in steam temperature (before the steam reaches its point of use) due to inadequate pipe insulation.

Our sophisticated measuring equipment can perform ultrasonic testing and thermal inspection helping to identify any inefficiencies in the system and quantify energy waste.

Energy Savers skilled engineers are able to perform a thorough audit of the facilities steam system, from the boiler combustion efficiency, distribution piping, steamEnergy Savers compile all the data in a detailed audit summary of the steam systems energy & water use, the energy waste from the existing system and the recommended conservation measure. In a clear and easy to understand financial payback analysis report. Efficiency audits typically have a very fast Return-on-investment of less than 6 months.

Heat Recovery

The operational efficiency of the boiler is defined as the useful heat output divided by the fuel input. Many boilers lose heat, for example, through the flue (about 18%) and in heat transfer from the water or gas. Boiler flue economisers, if not already present, can be retrofitted to most steam and high-temperature hot water boiler flues and often to non-condensing boilers. Exact savings depend on the type of boiler to which they are fitted. However typical payback is under 12 months.

The heat recaptures maybe used to pre-heat boiler feed water, store in a tank to provide hot water for other purposes or pre-heating the combustion air feeding into the burner.

Energy Savers engineers are able to effectively gather the systems available waste heat and design a solution that maximises overall efficiencies and reduces steam generation.

Water Treatement

PolyamineChemicals for water treatment, corrosion inhibitors and chemical products against scale and deposit in Steam production systems Water treatment for steam production systems for each size and type.
