# Steam Velocity through Piping

### 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
