Steam consumption can also be established directly, by measuring the mass of condensate collected in a drum over a period of time. This may provide a more accurate method than using theoretical calculations if the flash steam losses (which are not taken into account) are small, and can work for both non-flow and flow type applications. However, this method cannot be used in direct steam injection applications, humidification or sterilisation processes, where it is not possible to collect the condensate.
