Spirax Sarco - New Facility Enhances Traceability & Validation for Industrial Clean Steam Users

Clean Steam - Thermostatic Steam Traps - Clean Sample Coolers

Spirax Sarco - Opening manufacturing facility at Cheltenham headquarters

In response to the growing requirement for clean steam in the process industry, Spirax Sarco has unveiled a dedicated UK clean steam manufacturing facility at its Cheltenham headquarters.

The brand new 1200m² factory will manage the production of Spirax Sarco’s comprehensive range of clean steam system components, including BT6-B, BTM7 and BTS7 thermostatic steam traps and clean sample coolers – with many more products to follow. This significant investment builds on Spirax Sarco’s credentials as a clean steam pioneer, which dates back to the 1980’s with its development of the original BT6 clean steam trap.

Designed to reflect industry expectations, the state-of-the-art facility manufactures only stainless steel products to eliminate the risk of cross contamination of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Meanwhile, product assembly is completed in the company’s first dedicated ISO 7 cleanroom – the default classification for medical device packaging and one of several segregated testing, cleaning, and packaging locations which further avoid the risk of contamination.

As well as being able to offer customers full traceability and certified validation of the materials used to manufacture each product, the new facility will also enable Spirax Sarco to significantly improve the availability of its clean steam technologies and the associated technical and sales support. The result is a new production line which helps customers adhere to the most demanding of industry standards and guidelines by investing in products which ensure a productive and reliable steam system.

The facility, which has also opened its doors for customer visits, will enable Spirax Sarco to continue to support process-led businesses with the design and supply of steam systems tailored for individual requirements.

On opening the new facility, Group Chief Executive, Nick Anderson, commented: "We understand the quality issues our customers need to consider when they invest in clean steam systems. Our belief is that organisations operating in the food and beverage, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries should be able to guarantee quality, service, and traceability of all clean and pure steam products from a single point of supply. Taking these needs into account, our new factory underlines our commitment to helping process businesses to achieve the best possible quality of clean and pure steam."
