Hopefully a quick question regarding steam pressure. I have a pressure bomb that is going to be filled 1/4 with water and then heated to 300F. I am looking to predict the pressure that the steam will be under at this point. This doesn't look to be as simple as looking at steam tables. Can anyone give me a start on this, or am I making it too difficult?

Thanks

Water turned to steam (gas) is the most expansive substance in the universe.... and it is HOT... this adds up to a very dangerous thing... you can be killed testing this or burned over a vast per cent of your body in an instant.

Ok, explaination accepted..

no other replies at this time..

Thank you for the explaination.

I work for a high end sealing company and we are setting up steam test on high performance elastomers. The pressure bomb will contain water that will be heated to 300F and then to 400F in order to determine the effect of steam on the elastomer. As well as compression set resistance (the amount of set that is retained after an elastomer is removed from a compressed state). These are common application that we deal with as CPI and HPI have application that require steam sealing at temperatures exceeding 600F. I am very well aware of the expansion rates of steam and this is why my question is posed.
