Steam Pressure Loss through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Formulas that use Steam Pressure Loss through Piping

\(\large{ p_l =   \frac{ \mu \; l  \; v_s{^2}  }{  24 \; d \; g  \; \upsilon }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ p_l }\) = steam pressure loss

\(\large{ \mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = friction coefficient of steam

\(\large{ g }\)  = gravitational acceleration

\(\large{ l }\) = length of pipe

\(\large{ d }\) = pipe inside diameter

\(\large{ \upsilon }\)  (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume of steam

\(\large{ v_s }\) = steam velocity
