KLINGER is providing steam audits as a service, to help customers maximize efficiency, minimize expense and improve safety
Energy management through system monitoring is an important tool for any flow control system, steam included. Plant steam is important for many mission-critical applications, but it can be a complex and expensive system to maintain without the correct guidance. That’s why we offer steam audits as a service: On-site KLINGER inspection and problem solving brings our resources and expertise directly to your door.
Decrease energy loss and increase savings
Even a few small tweaks can add up to big savings when it comes to steam systems. Welds, gaskets, and other small components can fail incrementally, creating minute leaks that add up to significant energy losses. Steam traps that cycle at incorrect intervals can reduce performance, through increased fuel use and extended production time. Poor quality steam and other system integrity issues can lead to cost increase and environmental concerns. Thorough physical inspection of your system and scanning with our pipeline analysis software lets you troubleshoot recurring or hidden problems, as well as establishing a baseline to track long-term system behavior. A customized energy report will quantify leaks, inefficiencies, and other potential areas for improvement.
Pre-audit for future planning
If your team is preparing for an upgrade or overhaul to your steam plant, it’s the perfect time to perform a pre-audit. KLINGER can help you map out a plan to meet your facility’s goals while staying within time and budget constraints. Our design experts will optimize your system for maximum efficiency without compromising output. With an expert-approved plan in hand, your long-term budgeting and planning will become more accurate and more effective.
Keep your current and future steam systems running smoothly and efficiently, with expert audit services from KLINGER. Contact your local branch for details.
Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What is the steam audit process?
KLINGER will meet with your team to discuss the current state of your system and any problems or concerns you may have. After inspection and measurements, KLINGER will analyze the results and compare them to appropriate metrics and historical data. If necessary, KLINGER will recommend alterations or upgrades to improve system efficiency and integrity.
What problems can a steam audit solve?
One common problem in steam systems is roughing, or reddish-brown iron deposits that grow on the heat-transfer surfaces of columns, vessels, and piping. A steam audit can identify these areas, determine the extent of the corrosion, and suggest corrective actions to reduce or remove the corrosion.
How do teams stay current on steam technology?
KLINGER provides seminars and training courses to keep your team up to date with the latest steam system research and development. These events may take place at one of KLINGER’s fully equipped learning centers or on your own work site.
