Where can you find flash steam? 

There are lots sectors that use steam and have flash steam, which can be recovered and used to boost energy efficiency and make cost savings. 

Typically these sectors input steam at a higher pressure than their process and as a result have high amounts of flash steam available.

• Paper mills
• Tissue mills
• Rendering
• Fried foods
• Laundries

Why should you recover your flash steam? 

If you’re looking to cut costs and maximise the efficiency of your steam system then you should recover your flash steam.

Here are three reasons why:  

1. Save money on your energy costs as the use of flash steam results in lower fuel consumption by the boiler. Typical flash steam projects have a short payback.


2. Boost sustainability and overall efficiency by using flash steam instead of venting it, which is unsightly and an expensive waste of heat energy.


3. Save money on water and water treatment costs by using your flash steam instead of venting it.
