The sensational hop in oil costs over the ongoing years has put a lot of pressure on finding ways to reduce expenses in the manufacturing industry.

Steam is frequently the main supplier of heat to a process making it an asset therefore utilizing steam productively aids in decreasing the operational costs and in so doing creating savings.

For over a quarter of a century now, we have invested in researching on steam systems, putting together an able team that can deliver and associating oursleves with the manufacturer who has a proven energy efficient and emission reducing solution.

GEMThermal Energy Int’l. Inc. manufactures the GEM® Steam Trap which steam users can increase profit margins, meet emission regulations and increase production while reducing consumption of fossil fuels. Retrofitting your steam system with GEM® steam traps enables your organization to benefit from:

  1. Permanent Energy Savings:

    • 10 to 30% permanent reduction in steam costs.

  2. Excellent Return On Investment:

    • Payback typically ranges from 1 to 2 years.

  3. Ultimate Reliability:


  4. Minimal Maintenance:

    • No moving parts = no failure on traps = minimal downtime.

  5. Increased Production:

    • Faster system warm up = quicker batch times.

  6. Increased Safety:

    • No water hammer or condensate backup from failed traps.

  7. Greater Control of Heat Output:

    • Self-regulating vs. opening & closing mechanical traps.

  8. Superior Service:

    • GEM® traps are individually sized to fit your requirements.

We have surveyed, sized, installed and commissioned the GEM® Condensate Return System in virtually all sectors where steam is raised and used:

  • Breweries

  • Chemical manufacturing

  • Dairy and milk processing

  • Healthcare and hospitality industries

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Tea Processing

  • Tobacco Processing
