Calculates the combined steam properties of multiple steam inlets.
Calculation Details and Assumptions below
Step 1: Determine the properties and energy flows for the inletsUsing the Steam Property Calculator, properties are determined using Inlet Pressure and the selected second parameter (Temperature, Specific Enthalpy, Specific Entropy, or Quality). The Specific Enthalpy is then multiplied by the Mass Flow to get the Energy Flow:
Step 2: Determine the Header Specific EnthalpyThe header specific enthalpy can be calculated by dividing the Total Inlet Energy Flows by the Total Inlet Mass Flows:
Step 3: Determine Header PropertiesUsing the Steam Property Calculator, properties are determined using Header Pressure and the Header Specific Enthalpy:
- Inlet Mass Flows equal Outlet Mass Flow.
- Inlet Energy Flows equal Outlet Energy Flow.
- The combined inlet pressures are adjusted to match the header pressure without energy loss or gain.
