Revisiting this steam quality calculation...
I work for a small consulting company that designs sulfur recovery units primarily for refineries, but also some gas plant/chemical plant design as well.
Does anyone know of a way (empiracle method) of calculating the quality of steam that will be produced by a boiler without taking any measurements? If we design a waste heat boiler to cool a reactor effluent stream, and the client asks what the quality of the produced steam will be so they can decide whether to shell out the money to include a mesh pad mist eliminator or not, then we need to be able to tell them. This would be done before any of the plant has been built, so there is no way to take any measurements.
We have talked to boiler manufacturers and mist eliminator manufacturers, but they will not disclose their methods of doing this calculation. If you know of any way to do this, please let me know - especially if you know of some literature that discusses this.
