Objectives & Targets -To reduce fuel cost -Steam: 80 Mj/hl by 2006 -Water: 5 hl/hl by 2006 -Electricity: 8 kw/hl by 2006 -Better SHE -Reduce problem of automation -and more .… Ask Boon Hee ! Steam & Air Saving Practice Pham Minh Trung 3 ..

•external steam leakage. •pressure loss due to improper piping sizing •pipe redundancy. •steam trap leakage. Key Technical Issues The major areas of energy conservation in steam systems are the following: •Insulation hot pipings. >85%. Steam & Air Saving Practice Pham Minh Trung 4 . t°>80°C •trap flash loss. ≤50°C •condensate recovery. ≤45°C •Insulation boiler.
