Daniel Thwaites Brewery estimates significant energy savings through a three-year steam trap management contract with Spirax Sarco.

The savings are based on Spirax Sarco’s assessment of the steam that is being saved by regular scheduled monitoring and maintenance of the site’s 220-strong steam trap population.

This saving should enable the brewery to reduce its annual carbon emissions by 20,000kg.

Spirax Sarco has been carrying out steam trap surveys at the Blackburn-based brewery for many years, but switching to a longer-term contract including six monthly surveys offers clear advantages, according to Mick Cockshott, projects and utilities manager at Daniel Thwaites Brewery.

‘In the past we have had annual trap surveys done and then had to get the traps repaired at additional cost,’ he said .

‘Spirax Sarco now carries out any follow up maintenance automatically.

‘The contract also means that no one at the brewery has to remember when to call in the Spirax Sarco team, so there is no chance of this vital maintenance work slipping behind.

‘Surveys are scheduled by Spirax Sarco, so there’s no need to put a reminder in the diary.

‘The contract has been running for about six months and is going well,’ he added.
