Pressure drop and maximum allowable flow in steam pipes.
1 psi (lb/in 2) = 6,894.8 Pa (N/m 2)
1 ft (foot) = 0.3048 m
Steam & condensate systems- properties, capacities, pipe sizing, systems configuration and more.
The steam velocity in a steam distribution system should be within certain limits to avoid excessive wear and tear
Steam is a compressible gas where pipe line mass flow capacity depends on steam pressure.
Steam is a compressible gas where the capacity of a pipe line depends on the size of the pipe and the steam pressure.
