# Steam Pressure Loss through Piping

## 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
