Steam System Optimization Starts with Steam Balancing
Creating and maintaining a steam balance is the most efficient way to gain knowledge of all aspects of your plant's steam system, such as steam generation, distribution, end users, and condensate-recovery systems. The steam balance is always the first step in any steam system optimization and management program.
The valuable knowledge gained from developing or updating a steam balance leads to setting a road map to use the steam system in the most efficient way and provides the understanding necessary to increase steam system thermal cycle efficiency. Every plant needs to achieve the highest steam thermal cycle efficiency possible.
Accomplishing a Steam Balance
The steam balance flow diagram can be accomplished in many different ways, such as a fully devolved document completed in Aspen software to a simple flow diagram completed with Microsoft Visio. The key point is to have a steam balance document for plant personnel.
