Your Authorized Swagelok Product and Service Center

We can work with you to utilize services of highly skilled field engineers and energy advisors. With these services, look for ways to strengthen system performance and add energy efficiency.

If your plant is venting excess steam, consider turning that into monetary and energy savings. Contact your account manager or call us at 858-320-4000 for more information on the following:

Ten Action Points (TAP) for Your Steam System

This one-day course provides attendees with a solid foundational understanding of steam principles and processes. It addresses 10 critical areas of steam system management including steam cost calculations, flash steam recovery, steam traps and waterhammer.

Train Your Team— Customized training by request 

By appointment at your facility. To develop your team's capability to evaluate and act on a number of issues related to energy efficiency and reliability, an SEA consultant will lead training in your own plant. This training can be customized to your goals and your systems. Possible topics include:

Compressed Gas Leak Detection 

Energy efficiency and reliability are paramount in compressed gas systems to insure proper system operations and optimization. Participants learn to identify and report on leakage, understand codes and improve overall safety.

Pharmaceutical Steam System Operation Training

Reviews all aspects of a pharmaceutical steam system and is designed to provide attendees with a solid understanding of steam system management including topics such as steam dynamics, steam balancing, utility steam use, CIP systems, clean steam generation, clean steam components, condensate piping, and steam quality.

Chemical Plant Steam System Training

Reviews all aspects of a refinery/chemical steam system and is designed to provide attendees with a solid understanding of steam system management including topics such as heat transfer, steam leakage, desuperheating, steam tracing, steam turbines, steam and condensate piping, safety, and steam system mass balancing.

Onsite Evaluation 

If your plant is venting excess steam, consider turning that into monetary and energy savings. An energy advisor consults with you to identify your goals, then visits your facility to provide you with a comprehensive, systematic, and methodical evaluation. They can examine all components of your steam system and identify opportunities for improvement. Typically, these recommendations have shown to pay for themselves within 40 days. Specifically they can look at your system's condensate recovery, pressure reducing stations, desuperheaters, steam traps or temperature control in a heat exchanger or a dryer.

Road Map Implementation 

Based on the onsite evaluation, we can help customize a highly scalable road map implementation for your company. They can handle everything from project management to specific tasks based on your needs, such as system design and commissioning support.
