Steam outlet size calculation shown below is the recommended size of a steam outlet valve, however, the actual size of a steam outlet valve must be taken above and nearest to the recommended calculated size.
Steam outlet size of a boiler is dependent on 2 important design criteria mentioned below:-
- Required Boiler Capacity or steam output from the boiler (in Kgs/Hr).
- A density of a saturated steam or superheated steam whatever type of steam is leaving an outlet valve measured in Kgs/m^3.
