After the Green Saver System was installed the plant experienced the following advantages:
Overall monthly steam consumption cost reduction:
0.4 tons steam/ton powder x $331/tons steam x 1300 tons powder/month= $170,000
Resulting in $2,040,000 annual cost reduction
Total steam flow to the dyeing and finishing plant averaged 230,000 lbs/hr. At a natural gas cost of $3.85 dekatherm, the fuel cost was approximately $6.2 million per year. However, when I left the plant in early 1999, the average steam flow to the facility was 205,000 lbs/hr, a decrease of 25,000 lbs/hr over the initial rate. Fuel savings alone were over $650,000 per year due to the Venturi trap installation.
Steam Esco Green Saver units installed throughout the various buildings of the City of Baltimore. Our records show substantial savings, ranging from 19% to 21% on steam consumption from building to building. The tenants of these buildings have been very happy with the installation and we’ve never encountered any problems with these non-mechanical steam traps.

Our industry is very energy intensive, so steam quality and efficiency are critical elements in our drive for better cost control and quality assurance. We are happy that average savings of above 14% were realised at the plants and that our production reliability has also benefited from the enhancements to steam processes introduced in five of our facilities in Ireland and the UK.

Our existing steam traps were in poor condition and needed major maintenance, so we decided to make an exchange project. During the whole process, Steam ESCO have been most helpful in providing advice and technical support over the course of several site visits.
Steam Esco and Vertis Environmental Finance announced on 12 October 2015 that Vertis has made an investment into Steam Esco. Focused on emissions trading since 2001, Vertis was one of the first companies in the world to be involved in the carbon markets. Vertis will also act as sales agent for Steam Esco and will offer Steam Esco’s products to industrial clients across Europe and beyond.
Keith Moore, CEO of Steam Esco, said: “We are excited to team up with Vertis and work with their sales team to sell our products into new markets in Europe.”
“For Vertis this is a great opportunity to diversify and get back to helping our clients reduce their fossil fuel dependency and cut greenhouse gas emissions,” said James Atkins, Chairman of Vertis.
