Condensate Pipe Sizing formula

\(\large{ d = 12\;  \sqrt {   \frac { 4 } { \pi }   \;  \frac { m_c \; \upsilon } {3600 \;v_c}      }  }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ d }\) = pipe inner diameter \(\large{in}\) \(\large{mm}\)
\(\large{ m_c }\) = condensate load \(\large{lbm}\) \(\large{kg}\)
\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi \(\large{3.141 592 653 ...}\)
\(\large{ \upsilon }\)  (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume of condensate \(\large{\frac{ft^3}{lbm}}\) \(\large{\frac{m^3}{kg}}\)
\(\large{ v_c }\) = velocity of condensate \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
