Steam Pipe Sizing

Steam Pipe sizing formula

\(\large{ d = 12\;  \sqrt {   \frac { 4 } { \pi }   \;  \frac { Q_s \; \upsilon } {3600 \;v_s}      }  }\)

Where:

\(\large{ d }\) = pipe inner diameter

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ Q_s }\) = steam flow rate

\(\large{ \upsilon }\)  (Greek symbol upsilon) = steam specific volume

\(\large{ v_s }\) = steam velocity
