Steam and condensate system design requires in-depth understanding of the numerous interacting factors which have to be considered for long term, trouble-free operation.
While many of our projects have heat recovery as their focal point, often other operational and maintenance issues come to light once a plant modification is looked at in detail.
We can assist with providing design input into any size project, from commercial laundries to utility power stations.
Typical design applications have included:
Elimination of chronic steam leaks caused by less than ideal piping layout.
Redesign of condensate return piping to eliminate waterhammer problems.
Design of flash steam utilisation schemes.
Pump selection for low NPSH applications typical for condensate return.
Integration of boiler TDS control with boiler water sampling and chemical dosing.
Design of single or multi-loop PID and digital control systems, particularly for boiler drum level, steam pressure and temperature control.
