DESIGN CRITERIA: STEAM APPLICATIONS  
Pressure (PSIG):
Input the lowest pressure for which you want to receive maximum removal efficiency.

If given in PSIA, subtract 14.7 and enter in PSIG
  18.0  
Weight Flow, lbs/hr:
TOTAL WEIGHT FLOW (STEAM AND LIQUID)
0.0 PSIA  
Initial Steam Quality:
OPTIONAL:
Enter if known, otherwise assume 95%
       
CALCULATED SEPARATOR SIZE REQUIRED  
For all separators except Receiver Style and based upon approximate inlet ID (inches) Standard Separator Size:
If within 0.1 to the next standard size, consider going up another full size
   
For receiver style separators, due to extra complexity internally they are always a little larger for a given flow Receiver Separator Size:
   
Input a separator size equal to or larger than the calculated size requried to achieve the required removal rate based upon the style/efficiency. It is common to oversize the body and attach smaller connections to match piping to handle higher liquid loads. CHOSEN SIZE:
Enter the separator size to determine perforamnce data
   
Final Steam Quality:    
Maximum Capacity:
Maximum capacity for chosen size based upon design criteria above
lbs/hr  
% of Maximum Capacity:    
Maximum Capacity ∆P:
Differential pressure for the maximum capacity ±0.2 Accurate, most accurate from 14.7 to 600 PSIa
PSI  
Actual ∆P:
Calculated differential pressure based design criteria above
PSI  
Used to properly size drain trap and to ensure the volume of entraned droplets anticipated can be accomodated by the chosen separator size CONDENSATE REMOVAL RATE BY SEPARATOR DESIGN
 
% of Weight Flow lbs/hr: GPH: GPM:
Approximate "slug" handling capability
GPS:
