Steam Systems Best Practices

Steam is one of the principal forms of energy used in industrial processes. Nationwide, approximately 35 percent of the total energy used in industrial production is in the form of steam. In Wisconsin, steam boilers annually consume an estimated 800 million therms of natural gas—valued at $680 million per year at a fuel price of $0.85/therm. A typical industrial facility can save as much as 20 percent of its fuel costs through implementation of the steam system best practices presented here.
