Steam Tables Calculator - Water and Steam Properties
With HEI Condenser Performance Calculator
This program calculates water and steam properties using the 1967 IFC Formulation for Industrial Use. Java 1.2 or later is required. If the applet does not appear in a seperate window, then you may need to add Java support to your browser. To install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), go to Java.com.
The program calculates:
Calculate Steam and Water Properties
The program calculates condensed liquid and superheated vapor properties as functions of pressure and temperature, pressure and enthalpy, and pressure and entropy. It also calculates saturated and wet steam properties as functions of saturation pressure and quality, and saturation temperature and quality. To calculate properties, enter two values and then click the appropriate button at the lower right side of the screen.
For example, to calculate the properties for steam at 1800 psia and 1000 degrees F, enter the pressure and temperature. Then, click the f(p,t) button.
Saturated and wet steam calculations require input of quality and either saturation pressure or saturation temperature. To calculate saturated vapor properties, enter 1.0 for the quality. To calculate saturated liquid properties, enter 0.0 for the quality. For wet steam calcuations, enter a value of quality between 0.0 and 1.0.
For example, to calculate the saturated vapor properties at 500.0 psia, enter 500.0 for the pressure and 1.0 for the quality. Then, click the f(p,x) button.
The steam properties program supports both U.S. customary engineering units (psia, F, Btu/lbm, etc.) and SI engineering units (kPa, C, kJ/kg, etc.). Select the appropriate units on the menu at the top of the window.
Calculate Condenser Performance
The program calculates condenser performance using the HEI method. It calculates the condenser pressure as a function of condenser cleanliness, and also calculates condenser cleanliness as a function of condenser pressure.
To calculate condenser pressure, enter all the values except the condenser pressure. Then, click the f(cleanliness) button.
To calculate the cleanliness, enter all the values except the cleanliness. Then, click the f(pressure) button.
The program calculates condenser performance using U.S. customary engineering units. SI engineering units are not supported.
