Classification of Steam Heating Systems

Steam systems carries heat through pipes from the boiler to consumers as heat exchangers, process equipment etc.

Condensate generated in Cold Steam Pipes - SI Units

Huge amounts of condensate generated when cold steam pipes are heated up must be drained from the pipes

Condensate Generated in Cold Steam Pipes and the Sizing of Steam Traps

When cold steam pipes are heated up they generate huge amounts of condensate that must be drained away from the pipe through steam traps - in Imperial Units

Condensate generated in Insulated Steam Pipes

Heat loss from steam pipes generates condensate which must be drained from the system - imperial units
