Flash Steam Ratio Calculation

Flash steam refers to the lower steam which is formed when the hot water is released from a higher pressure to a lower pressure in a steam line. It is similar to normal steam, which is produced at a boiler or steam generator, while flash steam is formed from hot condensate in the reduced pressure. Enter the values of enthalpy of evaporation, initial and final liquid enthalpy in the online tool for flash steam ratio calculation.

The Flash steam happens when the saturation point of water varies in accordance with pressure.

Example:

Calculate Ratio of Flash Steam Generated for the following data : Initial Liquid Enthalpy = 250 Final Liquid Enthalpy = 50 Enthalpy of Evaporation = 23

Solution:

Ratio of Flash Steam Generated= (100*(250-50))/23
Ratio of Flash Steam Generated = 869.57 %.
