THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM® is appropriate to a wide spectrum of applications within the petroleum and petrochemical industries:
Some of the many problems typically encountered with mechanical steam traps in the petroleum and petrochemical industries include:
First year results in a plasticizer plant generated $158,000 in savings with THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM® installed in process, distribution and tracing applications.
In another chemical producing facility, an $85,000 project generated payback in three months due solely to reduced steam consumption.
In a third resin producing plant, where steam consumption dropped from 3,600 lbs/hr to 3000 lbs/hr, originally skeptical maintenance personnel reported that "nothing but condensate was being returned to the boiler."
In a fourth facility, a major US-based refinery, steam losses conservatively valued at $1.7 million per year forced consideration of an additional boiler. After installation of THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM®, savings in fuel and steam were expected to exceed $1.7 million and the greatly improved efficiency eliminated the need for another boiler.
