The Environment
Steam has always been environmentally
f r i e n d l y. Steam when condensed is pure
water with no pollutants. The genera-
tion of steam in modern highly efficient
centralized boiler plants ensures that
the total combustion emissions are
kept to a minimum.
Energy Saving
For most of the 20th century
Spirax Sarco has been at the forefront
of improving the efficiency of steam
plant. This now extends around the
complete steam and condensate
loop - no other company has this total
capability.

Spirax Sarco offers the solutions to maintaining efficiency in all areas of condensate recovery. For the total
system solution, Spirax Sarco’s non-electric pumps drain and return condensate and other liquids from vacuum
systems, condensers, turbines, or any other steam condensing equipment. The Pressure Powered Pump

can
handle liquids from 0.65 to 1.0 specific gravity and capacities up to 39,000 lb/hr. Available in cast iron or fabri-
cated steel (ASME code stamped) with stainless steel internals and bronze or stainless steel check valves, the
rugged body allows a maximum pressure of 125-300 psig and a maximum temperature of 450˚F. This system
solution saves energy and provides optimum system efficiency with low maintenance.
For easy installation, Pressure Powered Pump

packaged units are pre-piped and combine any Pressure
Powered Pump

, up to 3" x 2" with a receiver.
Spirax Sarco’s electric pumps are packaged units completely assembled, wired and tested. Electric con-
densate return pumps are available in simplex units with an integral float switch or a mechanical alternator on
the duplex units.

Maximum productivity requires delivering the steam at its most energy efficient pressure and temperature
resulting in optimum energy usage, and a safe, comfortable environment. Spirax Sarco has a complete range
of controls to efficiently provide the right heat transfer for any process or heating application.
Ranging in sizes from 1/2" to 6", operating pressures up to 600 psi, and capacities up to 100,000 lb/hr, the
complete range of controls and regulators provide steam system solutions industry wide. Available in iron, steel,
stainless steel, and bronze, Spirax Sarco controls and regulators are suitable for virtually all control applications.
The SV7 safety valve range from Spirax Sarco has been designed to protect against excess pressure
across a broad spectrum of industrial processes. Suitable for use with steam and air, SV7 safety valves provide
a comprehensive and competitive solution to most applications.
Spirax Sarco safety valves are modern in design, available in a wide range of inlet sizes and body materi-
als and are approved by National Board to ASME Section I and VII.

Spirax Sarco designs and manufactures all types of steam traps in a variety of materials. Whether it be for
steam mains, steam tracing, or heating and processing equipment, Spirax Sarco has the knowledge, service
and products to improve your steam system.
Mechanical steam traps are available in iron, steel and stainless steel with NPT, socket weld, or flanged
connections in sizes ranging from 1/2" to 4". Thermostatic types are available in brass, forged steel, stainless
steel, cast alloy steel with stainless steel internals with NPT and socket weld connections and are available in
sizes 1/2" to 1-1/2". The kinetic energy disc types are available in stainless, alloy and forged steel and range in
sizes from 1/2" to 1" with NPT, Socket Weld and ANSI connections. Several styles are available with Universal
connectors.
Meters can be used to cost raw materials or energy sources directly such as compressed air or steam. By
providing management information, meters ensure that the plant is being operated at peak efficiency thus ensur-
ing product quality is maintained in the most effective way.
The Spirax Sarco range of spring loaded variable area, variable differential pressure type flowmeters
include the “Standard Range Gilflo” (SRG), and the “In-Line Variable Area” Gilflo (ILVA). These meters provide
accurate measurement of flow over an operating range of 100:1 and can be used on most industrial fluids includ-
ing steam and gasses.
The design and manufacturer of the spring in all versions of the Gilflo meter is fundamental to its accura-
cy and long term performance. The spring is made from an “aerospace” alloy Inconel X750 which is widely used
in jet engine turbine components due to its exceptional high temperature performance.
The unique orifice and cone design of Gilflo meters minimizes the effects of upstream velocity profile,
resulting in a straight length pipe requirement much shorter than almost any other type of meter. Gilflo meters
can often be fitted into lines which were never designed to accept flowmeters.

A comprehensive range of stainless steel products:
• Steam Traps • Separators • Hygienic Ball Valves
• Pressure Controls • Filters • Sample Coolers
The use of clean or pure steam to reduce the risk of product or process contamination spans many indus-
tries and applications, including pure steam for sterilization of equipment in the biotechnology and pharmaceu-
tical industries, culinary steam for direct cooking and heating of foods, clean steam for humidification of clean
rooms, and filtered steam for hospital sterilizers. Spirax Sarco’s range of stainless steel specialty products have
been designed and manufactured to the highest standards and specifications required to withstand the rigors of
service in clean steam and other aggressive process fluids.
• Preassembled Steam Trap Stations • Steam Distribution and Condensate Collection Manifolds
• Forged Steel Manifolds • Process Condensate Removal Modules
• Condensate and Flash Steam Recovery Modules
From institutional condensate recovery applications to draining critical process heat transfer equipment,
Spirax Sarco’s modular pumping systems are the most cost effective and provide the lowest total installed cost.
The conventional method of individually specified and procured components with on-site assembly is labor inten-
sive and not conducive to today’s competitive plant standards.
The Engineered Systems Advantage expedites the installation process and delivers a quality solution to
numerous types of steam users. Each modular pumping system utilizes reliable Pressure Powered Pump

technology and saves 25% over the conventional method. Spirax Sarco backs each unit with a sole source
guarantee and unequaled expertise in steam system technology.
Engineered Systems
Years of accumulated experience has enabled the development and nurturing of in-depth expertise for the
proper control and conditioning of steam. Experienced field personnel work closely with design, operations, and
maintenance engineers, continuously evaluating ways to improve productivity. Often, these solutions pay for
themselves many times over.
The four U.S. training centers located in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and Blythewood, SC., have on-
site steam systems providing hands-on training. Education programs include the theory of steam, the applica-
tion of steam products, and plant design and system efficiency, to name just a few. Programs also can be tai-
lored to meet individual needs. Thousands of engineers, maintenance personnel, operations managers, and
plant managers complete Spirax Sarco training programs each year and return to continue broadening their
knowledge of steam systems.

• Condensate Contamination Detection Systems
Requirements for greater productivity have led to increasing boiler house automation and limited levels of
supervision. Spirax Sarco has developed a range of boiler controls that improve levels of both efficiency and
safety in the boiler house.
• By measuring boiler water conductivity, Spirax Sarco surface blowdown systems provide automatic TDS
control. The same operating principle is used to monitor and control retuning condensate lines ensuring
contaminated condensate is not retuned to the boiler house.
• Using “state-of-the-art” conductivity and capacitance probes, Spirax Sarco systems provide automatic
On/Off and Modulating level controls for boilers, deaerators, feedwater tanks, etc.
• High integrity, self-monitoring level alarm systems incorporating conductivity probes offer low maintenance,
high and low alarms that provide warnings of system faults and allow safe shutdown of plant. These systems
are suitable for steam boilers, particularly for those operating with only limited supervision, and can be used
with other vessels.
