**How do you calculate steam BTU?**

The Conversion Factor For the low-pressure steam typically used in heating systems, that ratio is 1,194 BTUs for every pound of steam the system provides. If your boiler supplies 400 pounds of steam per hour, for example, you would multiply 400 pounds by 1,194 to arrive at a figure of 477,600 BTUs.

### How many BTUs are in 1 hp hour?

Electric Horsepower to Btu Per Hour Since one electric horsepower is equal to 2,545.458268 btu per hour, the formula to find btu per hour is to multiply electric horsepower by 2,545.458268.

**Is BTU and BTU HR the same?**

A British Thermal Unit (Btu) is a measurement of heat energy. One Btu is the amount of heat required to raise one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. Btus per hour (Btuh) is the benchmark used to estimate the capacity of heating systems, such as gas furnaces.

### What is a lb of steam?

A pound of steam is merely a pound of water that has been trans- formed to steam. Sooner or later, this pound of steam will be converted back to a pound of water. And that is where the magic of steam comes into play in our dry kilns.

**How is steam lb/hr calculated?**

To convert Btu/hr to lb/hr of steam, divide Btu/hr by the latent heat of vaporization (hfg) at the corresponding steam pressure.

**What is the volume of 1 pound of steam?**

26.796 cubic feet

One cubic foot of steam weighs 0.03732 pounds, and one pound of steam occupies 26.796 cubic feet at zero psi gauge pressure and a temperature of 212°F.
