## What is Steam Condensation Calculator?

The Steam Condensation Calculator is a tool used to calculate the amount of steam that is condensed based on the heat removed from the steam and the latent heat of the steam. This calculator is useful in a variety of applications, including steam systems and HVAC systems.

**The Formula**

The formula used to calculate steam condensation is:

**SC = HR / LH**

**Where:**

- SC = Steam Condensation (lb/hr)
- HR = Heat Removed From Steam (BTU/hr)
- LH = Latent Heat of Steam (BTU/lb)

**Example**

Suppose we want to calculate the steam condensation for a system that removes 50,000 BTU/hr of heat from steam with a latent heat of 1000 BTU/lb. Using the formula, we can calculate:

SC = 50,000 / 1000 = 50 lb/hr

Therefore, the steam condensation for this system is 50 lb/hr.

**How to Calculate**

To use the Steam Condensation Calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the Heat Removed From Steam (BTU/hr) in the input field provided.
- Enter the Latent Heat of Steam (BTU/lb) in the input field provided.
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- The Steam Condensation (lb/hr) will be calculated and displayed in the output field.

**FAQs**

What is steam condensation?

Steam condensation is the process by which steam loses heat and changes from a gas to a liquid state. This process is important in steam systems, as it affects the efficiency and performance of the system.

What is the latent heat of steam?

The latent heat of steam is the amount of energy required to change a unit mass of water into steam at constant pressure. It is typically measured in BTU/lb and varies depending on the pressure and temperature of the steam.

What are some common applications of the Steam Condensation Calculator?

The Steam Condensation Calculator is commonly used in steam systems, HVAC systems, and other applications that involve the condensation of steam. It is particularly useful in applications where it is important to optimize the efficiency of the system by minimizing the amount of steam that is lost through condensation.
