Steam Velocity through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Steam Velocity through Piping formula

\(\large{ v_s =  \frac{ Q_s \;  \upsilon }{ 3600 \pi  { \left( \frac {d}{24} \right) ^2  }   }  }\)

Where:

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

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

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

\(\large{ Q_s }\) = steam flow rate

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