Through developing products and studying the steam-using processes in our customers’ plants, we came to realize that there are many problems in the steam system that cannot be solved by just providing products.
To proactively contribute to safe and reliable plant operations, we created the CES (Consulting・Engineering・Services) philosophy and team.
The aim of CES is to offer the best possible solutions to problems that steam-using plants face, increasing energy efficiency, protecting the environment, and improving product quality and productivity.
The organizational benefits of utilizing steam to its full potential and treating the steam system as an asset are significant.
SSOP® (Steam System Optimization Program) improves the safety and reliability of your plant.
In SSOP® we create clear visualizations of even complex steam systems and implement mechanisms that help keep plants in their optimal state and deliver sustained value to the organization through improved plant operation and maintenance.
There is more to SSOP® than total plant surveys and state-of-the-art monitoring systems.
We also uncover risks early and take preventative measures, mitigating the negative impact of system failure.
By uncovering risks early and taking preventative measures, we aim to prevent the negative impact of appliance or system failure.
A wide range of steam facilities around the world are reaping the rewards of SSOP® for their critical tracing applications, turbines, reboilers and other assets.
