A surface condenser is a commonly used term for a water-cooled shell and tube heat exchanger installed to condense exhaust steam from a steam turbine in thermal power stations. These condensers are heat exchangers which convert steam from its gaseous to its liquid state at a pressure below atmospheric cooling water is in short supply, an air-cooled condenser is often used. Mar 09,  · In surface condensers there is no mixing of exhaust steam and cooling water. The condensate can be re-used in the boiler: In surface condenser even impure water can be used for cooling purpose whereas in jet condensers cooling water must be pure.

Steam Surface Condensers: Basic Principles, Performance Monitoring, and Maintenance [Richard E. Putman] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. This reference for power-plant engineers, marine engineers, and students of heat transfer equipment presents the analytical theory of steam surface condensers together with practical Richard E. Putman.

The essential objective in surface condenser design is to provide equal access of vapor to all the surface. Early attempts to provide overall heat transfer coefficients for the design of steam condensers took no account of the detailed layout of the tubenest, e.g., HEI (). The author examines current methods for modeling, diagnosing and improving condenser performance. He describes how to calculate heat transfer coefficients, provides details of the recent ASME Power Test Code PTC , and explains the significance of heat transfer coefficients in measuring the overall performance of an operating condenser. Tube bundle of a surface condenser. In surface condensers there is no direct contact between the vapours to be condensed and the cooling water. The condensation heat is removed via the heat-conducting walls. Therefore, the temperature difference between condensation and cooling water is greater than that in the mixing-type condensation method. Jan 01,  · This volume is a comprehensive presentation of analytical theory and real-world practical solutions. It clearly illustrates updated approaches that plant managers and performance engineers can use in judging condenser performance and in making maintenance decisions.

The Allihn condenser or "bulb condenser" or simply "reflux condenser" is named after Felix Richard Allihn (–). The Allihn condenser consists of a long glass tube with a water jacket. A series of bulbs on the tube increases the surface area upon which the vapor constituents may condense. Oct 13,  · An air-cooled condenser is however significantly more expensive and cannot achieve as low a steam turbine exhaust pressure as a water cooled surface condenser. Surface condensers are also used in applications and industries other than the condensing of steam turbine exhaust in power plants. What is a Surface Condenser? Turbine Work Condenser Steam CW What Does it Do? Condenses the exhaust steam → Rejects the latent heat at the lowest practical temperature →Condenses under vacuum By creating vacuum, the condenser increases the efficiency of the turbine The condenser also performs some other important functions.
