Nudder Steam question

Steamhead Member Posts: 16,832
the water level bouncing is caused by steam bouncing off the sidewall of the tee. Repiping properly is the answer.

    Steam question


    Where are the best books to Design a low Pressure Steam system?

    (I already know where the Lost Art of Steam books are and have the go-ahead to finally get them)


    Take a look at this picture and the diagram by the manufacture.

    Is there a specific reason NOT to pipe the steam outlet of the boiler into the bull of a tee where the bottom run of the tee is piped to the equalizer line?

    The boiler is not piped correctly as per the manufactures diagram (or ours for that matter).

    I have this bouncing water line that underfiring doesn't correct (althoug it's better - the bouncing does hit the LWCO and cuts the burner out).

    I'm wondering if the outlet steam piping can effect the water level in the boiler due to the velocity of the leaving steam and rushing through the bull of the tee and creating a low pressure region at the run of the tee, and effecting the water line due to delta P at the tee?
