Thermal Energy’s GEM steam traps and FLU-ACE heat recovery technologies have wide applications in the food and beverage industry. From breweries and bottling operations, to food processing, packaging, and other food and beverage operations, we can help you reduce your energy costs while lowering your greenhouse gas emissions.
Our venturi orifice designed GEM steam traps, with their 100% stainless construction, are ideal for the food and beverage industry. With no moving parts, our traps do not fail like traditional, mechanical steam traps do. In fact, we offer a ten-year “no fail” performance warranty, which means increased reliability and less maintenance costs.
Our FLU-ACE heat recovery technology provides ideal solutions for recovering waste heat from dryers and boilers. The recovered waste heat can then be used to displace steam demand by heating process water, boiler makeup water and plant makeup air systems.
