Note! - to avoid unacceptable stress and damage in a steam pipe line - handle expansion properly.
A system is designed for pressure 120 psi with operating temperature 350 oF. As indicated in the table above (350 oF) the expansion is is approximately 2.4 in100ft pipe.
The expansion of a 90 ft long pipe can be calculated as
dl = ((2.4 in100ft) / (100 ft)) (90 ft)
= 2.2 in
