The steam balance is the most efficient method of gaining knowledge of all aspects of the steam system, such as steam generation, distribution, end users, and condensate recovery systems. The steam balance is always the first step in any steam system management program.

The valuable knowledge gained from developing or updating a steam balance leads to setting a road map to use the steam system in the most efficient way. Every plant needs to achieve the highest steam thermal cycle efficiency possible, and the steam balance provides the information to achieve this goal.What is “Steam Thermal Cycle Efficiency” are what affects the efficiency. A question that all steam system managers need to answer is the steam system thermal cycle efficiency.The average steam system thermal cycle efficiency is 56.3%, which means that 43.7% of the energy that is consumed in the boilers is wasted or loss.
