Kelcroft provides you with solutions for the built environment, that others can't provide, we design, energy smart Steam and Condensate systems, including piping, heat exchangers and boiler plant.

steam system auditor and survey

Our wide range of experience includes consultancy and advisory services for steam and condensate systems, covering hospitals, cook-chill, steam boilers, steam-to-water heat exchangers, steam control, steam traps, conditions surveys, autoclaves, sterilizers, and catering equipment, laundry and industrial process steam applications. We help organisations conducting:

  • Design of Steam systems
  • Steam energy audits link
  • Steam Trap Survey link
  • Efficient use of steam

This expertise allows us to offer valued added steam and condensate energy conservation advice and solutions that lower fuel and operating costs.

Condensate Recovery

After using the latent energy in your steam system the by product high grade hot water, is known as condensate.

Condensate is a valuable resource, it is vital for an energy efficient plant to return the majority of the condensate back to the boiler plant hot well for re-use. Increasing the quantity of condensate returned to the boiler plant has several advantages:

  • reduces raw feedwater demand
  • save heat cold water, lowering your fuel consumption
  • less raw feedwater reduces the need for fresh chemical treatments

How much condensate to return to boiler plant

In a perfect world all the condensate would be recovered and returned to the boiler plant, lowering energy costs, and water bills

However, inevitably there are some obstacles, including leakage and losses from the condensate system or contaminant condensate so A good rule of thumb for steam systems, target returning 80-85% of the condensate to the boiler.
