Why is steam line flushing important?
Flushing of steam piping is an activity that’s often neglected; however, without appropriate maintenance, steam piping can damage the components of steam systems over time. During installation of steam piping, scales and internal debris accumulate inside the steam pipes. The Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating team highly recommended you flush out steam piping of all this debris before the steam pipes become fully functional.
Why choose Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating?
A commissioning engineer should always supervise the flushing activity. The commissioning engineer should also inspect the cleaned system for any rust, sand, construction debris, etc., and sign the acceptance of flushed systems.
Our qualified team can inspect, prepare, and execute a complete flushing service, and then reinstall the piping systems/lines with correct materials per OEM specifications.
This is a job that should always and only be done by licensed professionals to ensure employee safety and prevent damage to large systems.
While you’re planning to flush your lines, it’s a good idea to also consider a pump audit to completely evaluate your entire system for energy efficiency. Pump audits show that up to 60% of the energy consumed by pumps could be saved. If you can save that much on operating costs each month, it’s a worthy investment! Our audits assess the overall efficiency of your pumps to propose changes to be made to improve efficiency. The proposals are supported by calculations of the savings to be made, the reduction of CO2 emissions, and the payback time on any investment.
