Installation of a modern steam system
A number of issues emerged from the audit, such as the need to modernize the entire boiler house, move the main heating units (being closer to the boiler house), implement condensate recovery and insulate the steam pipes and fittings. LBC entered into a partnership with Clayton for the renovation of the boiler house. Clayton provided the installation of two new steam generators, which are optimized for the variable demand of the steam system. A mobile rental boiler was used during the work to guarantee the continuity of the process. To ensure optimum water quality, LBC also entered into a water treatment contract with Clayton. In addition to the steam fittings, Spirax Sarco also supplied two Easiheat heating units, which are a complete and compact solution for heating water with steam in an accurate and energy-efficient manner. By placing it in the boiler house, the condensate can be immediately reused. Finally, the boiler house and the entire steam system were insulated where possible. Afterwards, the LBC employees were also trained by Spirax Sarco and Clayton to operate the new installation easily and safely.
