Customer Details

A textile plant in Western Indonesia 
Problems
- Excess blowdown
- Condensate discharged to pit
- Increased steam consumption due to trap leakage
Objective

To optimise energy savings, reduce water
and improve boiler efficiency and performance
Solution

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
Benefits
- TDS drained at 3500 PPM
- Condensate from sizing machine recovered and
returned to the feed water tank
