Flash Steam

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Flash steam is when hot condensate is released from a high pressure to a lower pressure steam.  This steam is the same as normal steam, the name is just given to explain how the steam is formed.

formula

\(FS =   \frac  {  h_i   \;   -   \;   h_o   }  { L }   \)

Where:

\(FS\) = flash steam %

\(h_i\) = specific enthalpy of saturated water at inlet

\(H_o\) = specific enthalpy of saturated water at outlet

\(L\) = latent heat of saturated water at outlet
