Steam is the lifeblood of your process.
The steam system, often an overlooked and neglected utility, holds the key to improved equipment reliability, improved process efficiency, reduced energy costs, reduced emissions, and ultimately increased profitability.
Let us help you unlock the potential of your steam system. With nearly 60 years in the industry, Applied Control combines our steam experts, Emerson’s wide product portfolio, local service, and a consultative approach to evaluate your plant and to help you achieve real results.
Optimize Operations & Energy Efficiency
Emerson’s broad portfolio of steam solutions include: thermodynamic, thermostatic and mechanical steam traps; blow-off and blowdown valves for removing sludge and dissolved solids from the boiler drum; gauges for monitoring the boiler drum water level; and automatic recirculation control (ARC) valves for protecting the boiler feed pump. Our experts can conduct steam system surveys and recommend solutions to ensure optimal operation and enhance energy efficiency.
Stable utility operations are needed to support all production. Energy is a large part of your operating costs and emissions constraints which can increase due to poor steam system performance. With Applied Control's and Emerson’s help, you can make utility performance reliable and responsive; improve efficiency; maximize low cost fuel use; and lower emissions… all at the same time.

Broad Portfolio of Reliable Steam Solutions
The Fisher™ Type 92B is the standard steam valve for industry. It is designed to provide decades of continuous service.
Yarway™ steam traps have a strong reputation for reliable operation and are suitable for a wide range of applications. Our Unibody steam traps offer in-line repairable solutions for easy replacement. Our experts can conduct steam trap surveys or implement our wireless steam trap monitoring solution to ensure proper steam trap operation and minimize steam loss.
Various solutions are available that meet the ASME requirements for direct or remote indication of boiler water level. Penberthy™ and Yarway level gauges are available for low, medium and high-pressure applications. Our portfolio of direct level indication solutions includes the Yarway Color-Port Level Gauge which has a maximum pressure rating of 3000 psig. Our Yarway electronic level solutions are suitable for remote indication of the boiler water level.
Our broad range of Yarway valves meet ASME requirements for various boiler applications. The Yarway Boiler Trim Valve portfolio includes surface and bottom blowoff valves to remove sludge and dissolved solids from boiler drum.
The Yarway ARC Valve is a self-contained mechanical device designed to protect centrifugal pumps in process plants. In steam loops, the ARC Valve can be used to protect the boiler feed pump and other centrifugal pump applications.
Steam Conditioning and Desuperheating
Desuperheaters can be used in many applications to efficiently reduce the temperature of superheated steam to the desired set point. Available variations are mechanically atomized (both fixed geometry and variable geometry) and steam assisted.
A Practical Approach To Understanding Steam Systems
Steam University is a comprehensive introduction to final control applications in steam systems. The purpose of the course is to provide an overview of key steam generation and distribution applications, including boiler blowdown, boiler level monitoring, pressure relief, steam trapping, pump protection and pressure reduction. The course includes real-world examples, best practices, selection criteria and maintenance tips for effective operation.
