Hi All.


Could anyone give me some advice how to calculate minimum amount of saturated water steam which has to be continuosly directed through the pipe (12", about 15m length) via by-pass, in order to protect this pipe against moisture of the steam, when control valve mounted on this pipe will be close?

If "moisture of the steam" is condensate of steam, you should calculate heat loss and then define steam flow rate. How will you set steam flow rate through bypass? In case absent of consumer you have to drain of condensate through drainage or steam trap for maintain flow in pipe.
