Calculation

1.0 Dry air suction

1.1 Determine the number of steam ejector stage

202.491

Source: Schutte&Koerting

Suction pressure given: 0.2 bar abs

: 202.491 mm Hg abs

: 5.90501 in Hg abs

From the graph given, the one stage of steam jet ejector has been chosen.
Suction temperature: ambient, 25o C

Air density at ambient temperature and 0.2 bar abs: 0.131 kg/m3

Air suction capacity: 213.628 kg/hr

From graph below:

5.90501

470.90 PPH

Source: Schutte&Koerting

470.90 PPH dry air = 213.628 kg/hr

1 lb/hr = 0.4535927 kg/hr


1.2 Determine the suction pipe diameter

Volumetric flow rate = 213.628 kg/hr 0.131 m3/kg

=1630.74 m3/hr

From the data Petronas Technical Standards PTS 31.38.01.11, November 2002

Preliminary piping size, velocities for air and other gases = 10 to 20 m/s

Piping size chosen:

Schedule 30
Nominal Pipe Size, mm 200
Inside diameter, mm 205.0
Inside area, cm2 330.2
Pipe suction diameter, in 8.0

Use reducer to reduce the 8 to 6 suction connection of steam jet ejector.

2.0 Discharge to condensate

2.1 Discharge rate given: 2.20 m3/s (7920 m3/hr)

Temperature: 25oc

Pressure: 1atm

Superheated steam velocity: 30 to 60 m/s (Source: Petronas Piping Guide)

From the data Petronas Technical Standards PTS 31.38.01.11, November 2002

Piping size chosen:

Schedule 30
Nominal Pipe Size, mm 300
Inside diameter, mm 307.1
Inside area, cm2 740.5
Pipe suction diameter, in 12.09

Use reducer to reduce the 12 to 6 discharge connection of steam jet ejector.


3.0 HP steam flow rate

3.1 Mass balance = 7920m3/hr 1630.74m3 /hr


= 6289.26 m3/hr

From the data Petronas Technical Standards PTS 31.38.01.11, November 2002

Superheated steam velocity: 30 to 60 m/s

Schedule 30
Nominal Pipe Size, mm 250
Inside diameter, mm 257.4
Inside area, cm2 520.5
Pipe suction diameter, in 10

Use reducer to reduce the 10 to 3 steam connection of steam jet ejector.

The size in inches chosen for the design is 6 based on the calculation.
