Water content in steel pipes and copper tubes.

### Piping Materials - Temperature Heat Expansion and Cooling Contraction

Expansion and contraction when cast iron, carbon and carbon molybdenum steel, wrought iron, copper, brass and aluminum pipes are heated or cooled.

### Recommended Velocities in Steam Systems

The steam velocity in a steam distribution system should be within certain limits to avoid excessive wear and tear

### Saturated Steam - Properties - Imperial Units

Steam table with sensible, latent and total heat, and specific volume at different gauge pressures and temperatures.

### Sizing Steam Pipes (kg/h)

Steam is a compressible gas where pipe line mass flow capacity depends on steam pressure.

### Sizing Steam Pipes (lb/h)

Steam is a compressible gas where the capacity of a pipe line depends on the size of the pipe and the steam pressure.
