- Excess blowdown

- Condensate discharged to pit

- Increased steam consumption due to trap leakage
To optimise energy savings, reduce water and improve boiler efficiency and performance.
Forbes Marshall carried out a detailed study of the plant to determine areas of concern, Following products were installed as per recommendation

- Boiler blowdown control system

- Condensate recovery system

- Compact module thermodynamic trap for header and mainline trapping

- Automatic air vents for header and dead end sizing machine
- TDS drained at 3500 PPM

- Condensate from sizing machine recovered and returned to the feed water tank

- 17% reduction in annual fuel bill

- Water consumption for process reduced by 87.8 m3/month
