Intended as a portal for steam users, the steam system efficiency web log, or blog, from Swagelok Energy Advisors, Cleveland, is open to all steam system users.

"Managing steam systems efficiently is every user's challenge, and SEA's blog is the place to ask questions, browse for tips, or share experiences," says SEA's Kelly Paffel.

Among the topics covered are steam and boiler plant questions and answers; web site links; information about and links to articles read in trade journals; notices about industry associations and upcoming events; reviews on new or existing products or services; and links to useful downloads.
