How about 28,000 in potential energy savings?

Each Spirax Sarco steam trap survey is revealing potential annual energy savings of 28,400 on average. Even more remarkable, the average payback time on each survey, including the cost of replacement products and their installation, is about two months, when all remedial work is done.

The figures come from an analysis of the first 50 Spirax Sarco steam trap surveys complete in 2007, which together have highlighted annual savings of just over 1.4 million.
