Since the amount of steam delivered varies with temperature and pressure, a common expression of the boiler capacity is the heat transferred over time expressed as British Thermal Units per hour. A boilers capacity is usually expressed as kBtu/hour (1000 Btu/hour) and can be calculated as. W = (hg - …

Using the Steam Property Calculator, properties are determined using Steam 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

[ Blowdown Mass Flow = 1.3 klb/hr = 32.4 klb/hr * 0.041 ] Using the Steam Property Calculator, properties are determined using Steam Pressure and Quality = 0 (Saturated Liquid).

Read MoreUse btu/hr (British thermal units/hour) heat input rate to calculate boiler steam flow. It takes 970.28 btu/hr to produce 1 pound of steam at the above conditions. If 50 million btu/hr are being applied to the boiler, divide by the 970.28-btu/lb to yield 51,531-lb/hr steam flow. This is an average industrial boiler. Advertisement.
