Flash Steam

Flash Steam

Flash steam ( \(FS\) ) 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.

Flash Steam formula

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

Where:

\(\large{ FS }\) = flash steam %

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

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

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