Energy efficiency tip of the day (steam and condensate piping systems retrofit opportunities)

“Stop venting and draining money!!” part III

  To conserve energy and cut costs, consider the following retrofits:

  1. Upgrade insulation with state of art high efficiency type.
  2. Eliminate or minimize steam use where possible.
  3. Install advanced control system for the steam pressure control loops.
  4. Replace old steam traps or ones that are the wrong size or type.
  5. Optimize pipe sizes. Oversized pipes lead to higher surface heat loss, while undersized pipes need higher pressure and extra pumping energy and cause more leaks.
  6. Depressurize condensate.
  7. Recover heat from condensate.
  8. Install a closed-loop pressurized condensate return.
  9. Measure steam and condensate flows with a meter.

  1. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

  2. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
