How Expansion Joints Prevent Catastrophic Failures

To avoid catastrophic failutres a critical requirement in any steam system is accounting for pipe expansion. As pipes heat up with high pressure steam, pipes can grow up to 8 inches for every 100 feet. That growth can exert forces that break loose pipe guides and cause catastrophic failures. In order to avoid that two […]

Steam Tip 26: Consider Installing a Condensing Economizer

The key to a successful waste heat recovery project is optimizing the use of the recovered energy. By installing a condensing economizer, companies can improve overall heat recovery and steam system efficiency by up to 10%. Many boiler applications can benefit from this additional heat recovery, such as: district heating systems wallboard production facilities greenhouses […]
