How do you calculate superheat temp?
take your gages and put them on the beginning of the evaporator (afte metering device or txv) and look at saturation temp then get your temp at the suction line (before the compressor)

When you are gauged up on the unit, as close to where your temperature reading will be taken as possible, (note: ofter times the there will be access specifically for this pur…pose very near the txv) use a good thermometer and obtain the temperature of the suction line 6 inches out from the evaporator coil. (right where the sensing bulb is in refrigeration or the equalizer tube for the txv in A/C is best.) Then, convert the pressure reading on your suction gauge to degrees for the type of refrigerant in the system and subtract it from the reading on your thermometer. This is the amount of heat that is being added to the refigerant AFTER it has changed state from a liquid to vapor. Remember to use a temperature pressure chart to get your temps for what kind of refigerant that's in the system. A/C systems should be between 15 and 20 degrees F Refrigeration is more like 6 - 12 degrees .
17 to 20 degrees is normal.you should always check dry bulb at return air and outside temp to determine the correct reading
Super heated generally refers to vapor. Super heated gas usuallycontains about 10 degrees of super heat in the gas. . +++ . I'm afraid you've muddled heat and temperature, f…or a start. Afluid cannot "contain" a number of degrees, but may be at thatnumber of them. This is because degrees measure temperature, theintensity of heat, which is a form of energy hence measured inJoules. . A superheated vapour is one whose temperature has been raisedabove the evaporation temperature at the pressure at which theliquid evaporated. The "usually" phrase is meaningless:superheating can raise the vapour's temperature by far more than amere 10Âº - whether Celsius or Fahrenheit degrees!
For example : if you want to product high steam pressure with temperature 310 C. but the real temperature is 320 C, so must be decreas less than 310 C by a device which name s…uperheater. there are many ways to decreas the Temp. For example make the steam through water which it Temp. 120 C to make heat exchange with steam before the water go inside boilers. I hope that a correct answer and simple. zaid alruwaili
The function of the super heater is to increase the temperature of the steam above saturation by utilising the heat from the flue gases.
take your gages and put them on the beginning of the evaporator (afte metering device or txv) and look at saturation temp then get your temp at the suction line (before the co…mpressor) then take you first temp and your second temp and subtract you highest temp from you lowest temp and that would be your superheat
Undercharge can cause HIGH superheat. Overcharge can cause LOW superheat. You need some superheat when charged correctly. How much is needed is depending on outdoor air tempe…rature and indoor wet-bulb temperature.
It is used to convert saturated or wet steam into dry steam foruse in steam turbines, which are used for marine propulsion and thegeneration of electricity. . +++ . Also use…d for steam feeding reciprocating engines such asrailway locomotives. It is not just a matter of dryness.Superheating allows the steam to work as a gas for longer duringits passage through the turbine or cylinder, hence increasing thethermal efficiency of the whole plant.
It's over charged, check the gauge if the air temp is about 80 degrees engine at idle 63 to 64 psi. 90 degrees out 70 psi with the A/C on max cool fan at high raise the rpms t…o about 1500 and the compressor should stay running and not go below 40 to 45 psi if the compressor starts to cycle on and off the low pressure switch is bad.
it is a low pressure heater used in the boiler system in the thermal power plants to convert the saturated steam into super heated steam.
What is the calculation to find evaporator superheat for a system with 76 per square inch gage for R22 when the evaporator outlet temperature is 58 degrees Fahrenheit?
In Mechanical Engineering
to reach the required temperature from lower processed temperature.
What is the evaporator superheat for the evaporating pressure 76 psig for R-22 and the outlet temp of 58 F?
it should be 17

You can only guess by looking at the gauge. If it is sitting half way up the scale it is normal and is running at around 200 - 220 degrees. It does not boil because the system… is pressurized.
