Steam Production Cost Analysis 2020
Steam is basically water in the gaseous form. It is widely formed by boiling or evaporating water. While the steam that is saturated or superheated is invisible, the real steam, also known as the wet steam or the visible mist or aerosol of water droplets, is often formed as water vapour condenses.
The enthalpy of vaporisation is the energy that is needed to turn water into the gaseous form, where it increases in volume by 1,700 times at standard temperature and pressure. This change in volume is easily converted into mechanical work by steam engines. Piston type steam engines played a considerable role in the commercial revolution. Modern steam turbines also use steam to generate more than 80% of the world's electricity.
In agriculture, steam is used to sterilise soil to avoid the use of harmful chemical agents and increase soil health. Steam's capacity to transfer heat is also widely used in our homes, for example, while cooking vegetables. Steam is also used in the cleaning of fabric, carpets or flooring, and heating buildings. It is widely used in ironing clothes as well.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Steam production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
