Forbes Marshall Provides Innovative Solutions for Efficient Use of Steam in the Industry
Forbes Marshall is now in its 75th year and has been providing innovative solutions for efficient use of steam in the Pulp and Paper Industry. The company’s association with the industry extends beyond the supply of world class products and systems. It works closely with the industry to build practical, long-term solutions to make manufacturing practices more sustainable and environmentally responsible.
The prime objective has always been to minimise specific fuel consumption through efficient generation, distribution and utilisation of steam including condensate and flash recovery.
Steam consumption per ton of paper produced and condensate recovery factor are the most important KPIs. Its innovative solutions focus on effective condensate evacuation from the drying cylinders using high speed rotary joints and engineered steam and condensate systems.
Forbes Marshall’s Steam Turbine focusses on auxiliary power generation with pressure reduction there by enabling power savings. Its study across plants shows that this specific consumption ratio not only varies from plant to plant but also within the same plant on a day to day basis. Forbes Marshall’s Sustenance Service for Paper Drying Systems offers an ongoing engagement covering real time benchmarking, analysis, trouble-shooting and providing actionable insights making it possible to narrow the band of variations to deliver a specific consumption that’s closer to the industry benchmark thereby delivering significant savings.
