Hi, I need to calculate the temperature of the condensate coming out of a steam trap. The incoming steam is at 50psig saturated vapor. Is it usually assumed that the outlet of the trap is 50psig saturated liquid? I am not sure if more than the latent heat is lost across the steam trap and/or if there is significant pressure drop across the steam trap. If more heat and pressure is lost, how would I calculate that? I appreciate any help! Thank you!
