Thermax has signed a three- year contract with Indian Oil Corporation to plug steam leakages in its traps and allied systems at the Bongaigaon refinery in Assam. C&H-Services SBU won the contract for continuous monitoring and survey of 5,760 steam traps and condensate recovery system spread within the refinery.
Petroleum refineries and the petrochemical complexes have a large demand for steam in their heating and tracing applications. The steam and condensate network plays a vital role in ensuring the effective operation of plants, as losses and leakages can impair energy efficiency. Thermax will help the refinery to step up steam recovery from 67% to 97%. The order reinforces Thermax’s commitment to help industries conserve resources and profits.
