See examples of how TLV has helped its customers lower costs and emissions while striving to create more efficient and dependable solutions.
Issue: High product reject rate after oven start-up due to lack of moisture in steam
Solution: COSR pressure reducing valves installed at oven entry to regulate steam moisture, improving batch quality and saving time, energy, and resources
Issue: A large water heating tank inside the factory causes problems for the workers and cannot reliably supply hot water
Solution: Switching to SteamAqua for their hot water supply improves cleaning and production efficiency, saves factory space, and reduces costs
Issue: Frequent steam leaks require constant maintenance, lower production efficiency
Solution: Optimizing the mash tun’s steam heating system prevents leakage and eliminates failures
Issue: Undetected trap failures responsible for excess energy costs each year
Solution: Performing a steam trap survey reveals 8 out of 30 traps have failed; replacing these with TLV products and installing COS-Rs at the brewery yields higher efficiency and dependabilty.
Issue: Unable to consistently produce hot water needed for cleaning processes
Solution: TLV provides the HeatPack, a packaged heat exchanger capable of rapidly supplying high volumes of hot water
Issue: Greencore wishes to increase the efficiency of 10 cooking vessels on site
Solution: TLV’s CV-COS, a pneumatic control valve with a built-in separator and steam trap, improves the quality of Greencore steam and allows for quick changes in pressure needed to cook different sauces.
Issue: Trap failure rate of 53% causes huge financial losses
Solution: Failed traps swapped for TLV models, maintenance plan implemented to keep failure rates to a minimum
Issue: High trap failure rate and low reliability causes problems for management
Solution: Implementing TLV products and strategizing with TLV results in improved steam trap management and financial savings
Issue: BOCM Pauls suspects steam trap failures at many of their sites, but cannot identify the failures without proper equipment
Solution: Using the TrapMan TM5, TLV diagnoses each trap and estimates the potential losses caused by failures. Finding the results very useful, BOCM Pauls extends the survey to all of their sites.
Issue: Leakage from steam traps and bypass valves, as well as poor steam distribution and condensate discharge piping design, causes energy costs to rise
Solution: TLV replaces valves and improves the design of piping, which leads to lower fuel consumption and energy costs
Issue: Steam pressure must be reduced from 10 bar to 6-8 bar for synthetic linen processing
Solution: TLV introduces CV-COS to the system, allowing for automatic pressure control as well as condensate separation and an improved system layout
Issue: Meeting an annual steam demand of 870 tons requires improvement in system efficiency
Solution: TLV develops a flash steam recovery system, allowing steam to be re-used and reducing the burden on the boiler
Issue: Flash steam going to waste
Solution: Flash steam used to heat condensate, then returned to the boiler
Issue: Steam-fired water heater leaking, with temperature adjuster broken
Solution: Faulty water heater replaced with the SteamAqua®, allowing for trouble-free sterilization with large volumes of hot water on tap
COSPECT is a robust alternative to traditional pressure reducing valves that often offers customers over a decade of reliable service. Here we share with you some long-term results from customers who chose COSPECT.
TLV has supplied vortex flowmeters for steam flow measurement in a development and refurbishment programme at the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, Kent.
