2. Learning objectives:

2.1. Intellectual skills:

a) Measurement of Dryness fraction of steam.

b) Steam properties

4. New concept:

1. Separating calorimeter:

The quality of wet steam is usually defined by its dryness fraction. When the dryness

fraction, pressure and temperature of the steam are known, then the state of wet steam is

fully defined. In a steam plant it is at times necessary to know the state of the steam. For

wet steam, this entails finding the dryness fraction. When the steam is very wet, we make

use of a separating calorimeter.

The steam is collected out of the main steam supply and enters the separator from the top.

The steam is forced to make a sharp turn when it hits the perforated cup (or any other

mechanism that produces the same effect). This results in a vortex motion in the steam, and

water separates out by the centrifugal action. The droplets then remain inside the separator

and are collected at the bottom, where the level can be recorded from the water glass. The dry

steam will pass out of the calorimeter into a small condenser for the collection of the

condensate. However, not all the water droplets remain in the collector tank. Some water

droplets pass through to the condenser, and hence this calorimeter only gives a close

approximation of the dryness fraction of the steam.

From the results obtained from the two collectors, the dryness fraction may then be found

from

Dryness fraction =

x=

Where,

m is the mass of suspended water separated in the calorimeter in the same time.

Procedure:

2. Identify all the connected equipments

3. Check the range of pressure gauge

4. Open the steam supply valve for a few seconds

5. Measure the condensate formed due to condensation of the moisture in the steam.

6. Measure the condensate formed due to condensation of the dry steam

Observation Table:

1 Boiler steam pressure, p1 (bar)

2 Mass of condensate collected, m (kg)

3 Mass of dry steam, M (kg)

Calculation:

x=

Result:

The dryness fraction of the sample taken from the main stream is ______________________.

Example:

separating calorimeter. At some instant, the water collected in the chamber was 0.1 kg

whereas the condensed steam was found to be 1.25 kg. Determine the dryness fraction of the

steam entering the calorimeter.

Solution:

= 0.926

2. Throttling calorimeter:

If we have steam that is nearly dry, we make use of a throttling calorimeter as shown

in figure. This calorimeter is operated by first opening the stop valve fully so that the steam is

not partially throttled as it passes through the apparatus for a while to allow the pressure and

temperature to stabilize. If the pressure is very close to atmospheric pressure, the saturation

should be around 100°C, it may be assumed that the steam is superheated.

When the conditions have become steady, the gauge pressure before throttling is read

from the pressure gauge. After throttling, the temperature and gauge pressure are read from

the thermometer and manometer respectively. The barometric pressure is also recorded.

From equation = ,

We have at p1 = at p2

+x = + Cp ( - )

And thus x=

Procedure:

2. Identify all the connected equipments

3. Check the range of pressure gauge

4. Check the range of thermometer

5. Check the range of manometer

6. Open the steam supply valve for a short time

7. Measure the steam chest pressure (p1)

8. Measure the steam outlet pressure (p2)

9. Measure the outlet steam temperature (t2)

Observation Table:

1 Boiler steam pressure, p1 (bar)

2 Steam outlet pressure, p2 (bar)

3 Steam outlet temperature (°C)

c. Enthalpy of superheated steam (hg2): ______________________

Calculations:

at p1 = at p2

+x = + Cp ( - )

And thus x=

x = _________________

Result:

The dryness fraction of the sample taken from the main stream is ______________________.

Example:

A throttling calorimeter is used to measure the dryness fraction of the steam in the

steam main which has steam flowing at a pressure of 8 bar. The steam after passing through

the calorimeter is at 1 bar pressure and 115 °C.

Calculate the dryness fraction of the steam in the main. Take Cps = 2.1 kJ/kg K.

Solution:

Pressure, p1 = 8 bar, dryness fraction, x =?

2. Condition of steam after throttling:

Pressure, p2 = 1 bar, Temperature, = = 115°C.

d. Enthalpy of wet steam ( ): 2046.5 kJ/kg

e. Degree of superheat: Outlet steam temperature – Saturation temperature

=( - )

= 115 – 99.6

at p1 = at p2

+x = + Cp ( - )

x=

x = 0.97

3. Separating and throttling calorimeter:

If the steam whose dryness fraction is to be determined is very wet then throttling to

atmospheric pressure may not be sufficient to ensure superheated steam at exit. In this case it

is necessary to dry the steam partially, before throttling. This is done by passing the steam

sample from the main through a separating calorimeter as shown in figure. The steam is made

to change direction suddenly, and the water, being denser than the dry steam is separated out.

The quantity of water which is separated out (mw) is measured at the separator, the steam

remaining which now has a higher dryness fraction, is passed through the throttling

calorimeter. With the combined separating and throttling calorimeter it is necessary to

condense the steam after throttling and measure the amount of condensate (m s). If a throttling

calorimeter only is sufficient, there is no need to measure condensate, the pressure and

temperature measurements at exit being sufficient.

Let,

Dryness fraction at 2 is , therefore, the mass of dry steam leaving the separating

calorimeter is equal to ms and this must be the mass of dry vapour in the sample drawn

from the main at state 1.

The dryness fraction can be determined as follows:

= = + * ………………..at p2

x2 =

The values of and are read from steam tables at pressure p2. The pressure in

the separator is small so that p1 is approximately equal to p2.

Procedure:

2. Identify all the connected equipments

3. Check the range of pressure gauge

4. Check the range of thermometer

5. Check the range of manometer

6. Open the steam supply valve for a short time

7. Measure the steam chest pressure (p1)

8. Measure the steam outlet pressure (p2)

9. Measure the outlet steam temperature

3 Water condensate formed in separating calorimeter, m w (kg)

4 Steam outlet pressure at throttling calorimeter, p 2 (bar)

5 Outlet steam temperature from throttling calorimeter, (°C)
