Water for the Boiler - Spirax Sarco | First for Steam

This results in very high steam release rates per unit of water area, and turbulence. Water-tube boilers tend to be higher rated, perhaps over 1 000 tonnes/h of steam. This means that even a small percentage blowdown can represent a high mass to be blown down. Water-tube boilers tend to operate at higher pressures, usually up to 150 bar g.

The Story of the Boiler - Wonders of World Engineering

For superheating the steam in water tube boilers such as these, there is a series of small-diameter U-shaped tubes which come down into the combustion space above the tubes from the saturated steam delivery pipe, and return to a header on the main delivery pipe, whence the steam is taken to the engine. There may be one or more loops to each

That is right on the edge of using a 1.5" or a 2" pipe. Being conservative, I would go with the 2" exiting the boiler and save a bushing. Then I would reduce to 1.5" or 1.25" just before your air separator, depending on the type and size you are using. The difference in cost between a 2" and 1.5" or 1.25" air separator can be large.
