pipe sizing: Maximum Allowable Flow Velocity:
Low psi steam (up to 15 psi)=5,000fpm
high psi steam=10,000
superheated steam= 14,000fpm
pipe size /density=___/60=___min/.7854/5k,10,14k=__sq.rootx12
Q: A 15 psi steam boiler produces 8000 pounds of steam per hour. the minimum pipe size for the pipe leaving the boiler is ____ inches (Density is o.037lb/ft3)
8000/.037/60/.7854/5000/sq root x12=11.50inch
