Steam Leak has just been released!

This handy calculator allows a person to approximate the cost of a leak and the potential money that could be saved by repairing the leak in a set number of days. All you have to do is enter the steam pressure ( valid for 0.5 to 250 psig or 0.034 barg to 17 barg), the orifice/leak size (valid up to 1 inch or 25.4 mm) and the cost of your steam. Also, note that this calculation does not include the cost of the condensate that is lost which is an additional savings for getting the leak repaired.

This application allows you to perform the following calculations in both USCS and metric units:

1. The steam loss rate from a leak in a steam pipe (lb/h and kg/h) and the cost of the leak per hour

2. The total steam loss (klb = 1,000 lb and kkg = 1,000 kg) and the cost of the leak over a duration of days selected, up to 999 days.
