Steam, Boiler, Pressure, Condensate, Moisture, Trap, Corrosion
When designing and building a brewery, or even later when production is in full swing, utilities, especially steam, are forgotten and taken for granted. This lecture goes over some of the basic concepts for the design of steam systems (i.e. steam supply and condensate return) and what some of the common mistakes that are made when systems are installed. The understanding of those fundamental principles could prevent some of the most common design flaws that can cause equipment damage and potential risk to people’s safety.
