Erosion by Steam and Condensate;
Erosion or erosion by Steam and Steam Condensate is caused by Steam / Condensate In our system, a two-phase state occurs: Steam vapor is mixed with condensate water. The reason why the two-phase is caused by:
- The steam loses heat and energy from running through pipes causing condense to be liquid condensate.
- Using Steam to heat exchangers in Heat exchanger devices causes liquid condensate to occur.
- Condensate water in the system is able to evaporate ( flash ) to steam vapor when the pressure in the pipe changes from high to low pressure, such as at the Steam Trap outlet.
