Flash steam generation - thermodynamic fundamentals, heat loss, energy recovery and more
Flash steam produced in condensate pipe lines
When flash steam is generated and vented to the surroundings a considerable amount of energy is lost
Tutorial to the basic physics behind flash steam generation
When condensate passes steam traps - flash steam is generated
When condensate leaves the steam traps - flash steam is generated. Amount of flash steam generated at different pressures - kN/m2
The amount of flash steam generated depends on steam pressure and pressure in the condensate lines
Steam table with sensible, latent and total heat, and specific volume at different gauge pressures and temperatures
