A range of steam-system improvements recommended by Spirax Sarco has helped Dairy Crest reduce gas consumption at its Kirkby factory by 18 per cent.

This reduction was due to a combination of energy-saving measures.

One of the major improvements was raising the temperature in the boiler feed tank from between 79 and 82C to 96C.

Condensate recovery was another area that produced strong results, raising the proportion of hot, treated water recycled back to the boiler from 76 per cent to between 94 and 95 per cent.

The steam system audit also highlighted a variety of other energy-saving measures, such as repairing and installing insulation, improving the blow-down control on the boiler and repairing or replacing any malfunctioning steam traps.

The Spirax Sarco engineers compiled an asset list of all steam traps around the site and Dairy Crest has now engaged Spirax Sarco to carry out an annual inspection and service across the entire population.
