Dodman have recently been awarded a contract to look after a major Food company’s steam Boilers and distribution systems
We have over 30 years’ experience in the energy sector with a particular steam and condensate systems focus.
A service contract/regular site involvement can bring about a range of benefits
Improve steam quality:
- Save energy
- Cut carbon emissions
- Reduce steam consumption
- Raise product quality
- Lower water and chemical treatment costs
- Improve safety
- Minimize downtime
- Reduce corrosion for longer boiler and pipework life
Listed below are some of the SERVICES that Dodman Limited is currently offering our Customers.
To supply the relevant time-served craftsmen to carry out all types of works, from reactive leak repairs on a call-out arrangement, through to complete new turn-key systems (including Boiler House)
We offer a proactive approach when carrying out leak/repairs with the submission of the resultant report sheet, in order to identify causes.
(Analysis of failure permits an assessment of mechanisms causing erosion and corrosion).
STEAM AND CONDENSATE PIPEWORK ANALYSIS
Steam boiler water treatment is rarely examined as a complete circuit, specifically in how chemistry changes throughout the system
Steam quality can influence heat exchange process performance. Condensate chemistry will influence condensate return system service life.
Resolution of pipework expansion systems will minimise pipework stress and resultant leaks
Dodman can help you look at Pressure Systems rationalisation
Identify and renew/replace non-compliant equipment within systems infrastructure – where functional and reliability issues are identified on site – look at performance/reliability improvements.
CONSIDER STANDARDISATION OF CONTROLS EQUIPMENT
Currently Dodman works closely with ARI, ASCON, ECKHARDT, GESTRA, SIEMENS, SPIRAX and TLV, whilst also having accounts with major local and national stockists of these components.
The multi-supplier stock holding and partnership with local service providers ensures the right product, when required and correctly applied.
REVIEW ENGINEERING EFFICIENCY
We offer – System Monitoring / Data-Logging / Trap-Set Surveys
REVIEW PRESSURE-REDUCTION APPLICATIONS
A recent survey on Customers’ sites has brought about a reduction of installed PRV stations (control and relief valves), a traditional problematic area within Factories.
Quantify energy and utility losses from defective equipment. Calculate a payback period based on the remedial works and equipment required against the calculated losses using provided utility unit costs.
To provide back-up data – fuel savings/heat loss reduction and pay back justification.
(Cost accounting is on the agenda. Even today, through the intelligent use of steam as a heat conductor, energy savings of up to 30% can still be attained, modern production processes can be optimized and a repayment time of less than six months is possible)
