Line Size is adequate

Assumptions: 1. Most of the flow patterns for steam condensate headers fall within the annular or dispersed region on the baker map. Rarely flow pattern falls in slug flow region. 2. Flashed steam is less than 30% by weight. 3. Vapour-liquid Vapour-liquid mixture throughout the condensate line is represented by mixture conditions near the end of the line. Method: 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, Also, the velocity of the mixture in the line of specified specified size is calculated. If  the velocity is lower than 5000 Foot/Min., the specified line size is said to be adequate.
