agree  Daniel Parra: Habría que especificar que son "psi", o libras por pulgada. Es una fuerza, no un peso.

  -> Gracias por el comentario. En este caso el uso es como unidad de masa y no de presión, porque se refiere a la relación entre el agua de relleno y la cantidad de vapor, no la presión del mismo.

agree  Hector Aires: Así es. Efectivamente, no se trata de una presión sino de la cantidad de vapor en libras.
