Correct sizing of pipework and valves for steam applications ensures reliable and efficient operation
Steam is used in a wide range of industries for a variety of processes, from a basic small heating circuit to large scale hygienic steam production, involving specialist equipment which needs to be designed and maintained properly to ensure efficient and reliable operation of the process equipment.

Ian Webster, Hygienic Processing Segment Manager at Bürkert UK offers industry leading steam training courses; here he looks at some of the basic calculations that should be understood by design and maintenance engineers in order to achieve a safe and efficient process.
