# Factor of Evaporation

The factor of Evaporation is used to adjust rated boiler output (from and at 212 degrees F) to actual job or operating
conditions. Available feedwater temperature and expected boiler operating pressure (psig) affect- the boiler output ratings
which are based on "from and at 212 degrees F."

Example: A boiler is to have an output of 3060 pounds of steam/ hour when operating at 10 psig with feedwater at 100
degrees F. What should the boiler rating be on the basis of from and at 212 degrees F?

From the following chart, at 100 degrees F and 10 psig, we obtain the factor 30.6 pounds of steam/BHp. This factor is
used to convert to the "from and at 212 degrees F" rating basis.

3060
-------- = 100 hp rated boiler should be selected.
