PROPERTIES OF STEAM

Steam:

Vapour form of water is called STEAM.

Water in solid phase: ICE

Water in liquid phase: WATER

Application of steam

Food processing industry.

Cooking: hotels, restaurants etc.

Used as a working fluid in steam engines and steam

turbines.

Petrochemical industry.

Washing / drying / sterilizing in hospitals.

Health clinic / gym.

Dept. of Mechanical & Mfg. Engg.

Properties

Definition:

The characteristics of a system that can be used to define

its condition/state is called as a property.

Example:

in a freezer. You may find out that the ice cube is at -4oC

and occupies 1m3 volume upon mesurement.

Here, the temperature and volume are the properties of ice.

Definitions

Sensible heat (hf): (Enthalpy of water)

It is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature

of 1 kg of water from 00C to the saturation temperature

Tsat0C at a given constant pressure P.

hf = m x Cp x T kJ

Where, m = mass of water in kg.

Cp = specific heat of water

= 4.1868 kJ/kg0K

T = Temperature Difference.

Latent heat (hfg): (Enthalpy of evaporation)

It is the amount of heat required to evaporate 1 kg of

water at saturation temperature to 1 kg of dry steam at the

same saturation temperature and at the given constant

pressure P.

Superheated temperature (Tsup):

temperature at a given constant pressure.

Dept. of Mechanical & Mfg. Engg.

It is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature

of dry steam from its saturation temperature to any

desired higher temperature at the given constant

pressure P.

Wet Steam:

A wet steam is defined as a two-phase mixture of

finely divided water particles and steam at the

saturation temperature corresponding to a given

stated pressure.

(dry steam)

Dry saturated steam is the steam at saturation

temperature and at a given pressure having no water

molecules entrained in it.

15

Superheated Steam:

A superheated steam is defined as the steam at a

temperature higher than the saturation temperature at the

given stated pressure.

16

Superheated steam possess very high energy compared

hence its capacity to do the work will be higher.

It doesnt create any problems like rusting or corrosion of

blades of turbine / engine cylinder.

17

The high temperature of superheated steam poses

problems in lubrication.

Higher generation & initial cost.
