This week’s Monday Morning Minutes answers the question:
“What can I expect to see covered in Monday Morning Minutes over the next few weeks?
Last week we
answered the question,
“What size should the
steam pipe be after the
control valve entering
the heat exchanger”.
The responses I
received were positive
and a few of you
introduced this week’s
Solution: We continue to review the steam and condensate piping around a
steam to water heat exchanger used for plumbing and hydronic heating applications.
We will look at one area of the above schematic each week in roughly the following
A: Why are most steam to water heat exchangers in building services provided with
low pressure steam rather than medium or high pressure?
B: Why do I need a vacuum breaker and where should it be located?
C: Why is the rule of thumb 14" for the drop leg to the steam trap and what happens
if it is more or less than 14"?
D: Is there a difference between steam strainers and condensate strainers?
E: Types of traps and sizing of traps.
F: Lift vs. gravity returns out of heat exchangers used for domestic water and
hydronic heating.
G: Flash steam and flash tanks.
H: Condensate pipe sizing and flash steam.
I: Temperature of condensate and condensate return units.
J: Condensate pump discharge piping.
K: Saving energy with vent condensers.
L: Shell and tube vs. plate exchangers in steam applications.
