Condensate Line Sizing
1. Amount of condensate flashed is calculated.
2. Further to above the density of the mixture (condensate+flashed steam) is found out.
3. Using two pressure drop correlations, pressure per 100 ft. is calculated.
4. Also, the velocity of the mixture in the line of specified size is calculated. If the velocity is lower than 5000 Foot/Min., the specified line size is said to be adequate.
