Wright-Austin custom fabricated carbon steel exhaust heads are used to reduce visible condensate plumes and to recover various chemistries prior to venting to atmosphere. All internals are made of 304 stainless steel (316 stainless steel internals would be an approximate cost adder of 15-20%). ASME Code Stamps and CRN are not available because exhaust heads are not pressure vessels. The lead time for custom fabricated carbon steel exhaust heads is typically 8-12 weeks. If the lead time is critical, please contact our office and obtain a lead time estimate based upon the current manufacturing backlog. 

How to Size an Exhaust Head

When sizing an exhaust head, the pressure that is used to size it should always be Atmospheric (14.7 PSIA), no matter what the application pressure is. The flow rate is the determining factor.

To calculate the pressure drop through an exhaust head, simply follow the equation stated on the Air Sizing Chart or Steam Sizing Chart. The pressure always stays the same since there is no back pressure; the rated pressure drop (obtained from the right side of the sizing charts) always remains the same. (0.9 PSI).

The difference between PSIG and PSIA is the “measured” pressure is the difference between the unknown pressure and the atmospheric pressure. This difference is referred to as the gauge pressure (PSIG), whereas the true pressure, called absolute pressure (PSIA) includes atmospheric pressure. To obtain operating pressures in PSIA add 14.7 to gauge pressure PSIG.
