There’s a golden rule to follow when sourcing a control valve. Don’t buy on the valve’s initial cost, look instead at the hidden costs throughout its lifetime. To help you through the process we've developed our Control Valve Buyers Guide, which gives you 12 key questions that will enable you source a valve that will offer long-term value and reducing TCO.

"Measuring your steam consumption is vital to understanding the efficiency and performance of your steam system."
1) By collecting the condensate
Steam consumption can also be established directly, by measuring the mass of condensate collected in a drum over a period of time. This may provide a more accurate method than using theoretical calculations if the flash steam losses (which are not taken into account) are small, and can work for both non-flow and flow type applications. However, this method cannot be used in direct steam injection applications, humidification or sterilisation processes, where it is not possible to collect the condensate.
"Our customers tell us that steam is more than ever becoming an integral and essential part of a wide variety of modern industrial processes."
Without steam, our food, textile, chemical, medical, power, heating and transport industries could not offer the quality, breadth and quantity of many of the products and consumables demanded by modern consumers at market prices.
