## Superheat Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Superheat.

SH = C T - ST

Variables:

- SH is the Superheat (F)
- CT is the compressor temperature (F)
- ST is the saturation temperature (F)

To calculate the superheat, subtract the saturation temperature from the compressor temperature.

## How to Calculate Superheat?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Superheat.

- First, determine the compressor temperature (F).
- Next, determine the saturation temperature (F).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SH = C T – ST.
- Finally, calculate the Superheat.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

compressor temperature (F) = 51

saturation temperature (F) = 24

SH = C T – ST** **= ?
