Green lines mark 7 bar example

bars g.

A: Steam flow is 450 kg/hr. Find 450 kg per

hour on the steam flowrate access.
B: Pressure is 7 bar. Find the line for 7 bar
on the steam pressure axis where it
intersects the saturation temperature curve.
E From this point draw a horizontal line to
C intersect with line A.
C: Draw a vertical line from this intersection
up to the lines at 45 degree angle
D
representing steam velocities
D: The class told us the acceptable range of
velocities is often considered to be between
24 and 36 m/s. Find the point where line C
crosses the 30 m/s line.
E: Draw a horizontal line from the
intersection of C and D. The pipe diameter
B
will be 40 mm.

Red lines mark 100 PSI example
Steam flow is 1,000 lb/hr. Find pipe size for
100 psig.
E

A: Steam flow is 1000 lb/hr. Find 1000/lb per

hour on the capacity axis.
D
C B: Pressure is 100 PSI. Find the line for 100
PSI where it intersects line A.
C: Draw a vertical line from this intersection
up to the lines at 45 degree angle
representing pipe sizes
D: The class told us the acceptable range of
velocities is often considered to be between
4,800 and 7,200 fpm. Where line C crosses
the 45 degree pipe size line, the horizontal
line shows the resulting velocity in feet per
minute.
E: Where line C intersects with the 2 pipe
line, the velocity would be around 3000 fpm
A B
rather slow. Where it crosses the 1 pipe
line, the velocity would be just under 5,000
fpm. 1 pipe would be suitable. 1 pipe
would result in a velocity of around 6,500 fpm,
also acceptable.
