Steam to water conversion

Hi there,
Is there any method to calculate the amount of steam condensed to form water? Lets assume 1000 lbs of superheated steam at 4000C condensed to water at 450C. What will be the amount of water? I have calculated it through specific volume but it returns with a very minimum value.

Hello Waqas, :welcome:

1000 lbs IS an amount of H2O. So 1000 lbs of steam (H2O in vapor phase) will condense to 1000 lbs of water (H2O in liquid phase).

...as long as the pressure in the condenser is over something like half an atm....or there is something else critical we aren't being told...

Thanks for the reply but may be I couldn't state my problem clearly enough. I will try again. In my case, we are inserting 1000 lb/hr steam in a fractionating column. I need to calculate the water produced. Will it return the same flow?

Yes. 1000 lbs of steam will condense to 1000 lbs of water
