Calculation

## 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

## From graph below:

## 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
