As a manufacturer of chemicals, it’s likely you rely on steam as a critical thermal energy source for your processes. And it’s clear why so many industrial manufacturers use steam – it’s extremely efficient in transferring heat and easily controllable with the right equipment. Steam flows naturally without the need for pumps and generally requires smaller and lighter pipelines than alternative thermal energy methods.
The chemicals sector, like every manufacturing industry is facing increasing pressure to take action in ensuring sustainability in processes and reduced carbon output.
Optimising your steam-using processes and ensuring efficiency throughout the steam system could have a significant positive impact on your energy usage and carbon footprint, and we can show you how.
A steam system that is running efficiently will have very little waste, and will return more condensate back to the boiler – this offers an exceptional return on investment and has a range of sustainability benefits.
In addition to the sustainability and carbon reduction benefits, a steam system that is running at its best will also ensure reduced downtime, excellent productivity, and product quality.

A German chemicals company were experiencing energy losses within their steam trap population.
Suited to steam-regulated heat exchangers, vacuum systems, drying cylinders, steam driers and systems with very low operating or differential pressures, GESTRA's ball float steam trap remove condensate from steam, cold condensate and distillates.
Membrane steam traps with a membrane regulator are highly responsive and ideal for saturated steam systems, steam tracing, heating coils, air heaters, steam roller/iron and tyre presses.
Bimetallic steam traps are highly responsive, very efficient and extremely resistant, making them ideal for superheated and saturated steam systems, along with steam tracing and heating coils.
