Vapor shear and inundation by condensate from tubes higher in the nest affects the condensate film. Power station condensers are some of the largest heat exchangers in existence, typically containing some 20, tubes of 25 mm outer diameter and 20 m in length. Condensing heat transfer rates are typically two orders of magnitude higher than the rates for a gas condebsers the shell side, so condensers do forr generally require extended surface tubing.

Condensers and Cooling Towers. More importantly frictional pressure losses as the vapor passes between the closely cpndensers tubes lowers the partial pressure—and hence saturation temperature—reducing the heat exchange driving temperature difference. Where cooling water is not available, condensers are being designed for direct cooling by air.
Poorly designed nests may suffer excessive frictional pressure losses and contain regions where the tubes are blanketed by noncondensable gases. Techniques to Reduce Exchanger or System Cost. There are no products. Sign in or create your free personal ASME account.
By the cor the 7 th edition of the HEI Standards was issued inconcerns with corrosion and other issues with nonferrous tubing materials had led to increased specification of stainless steel while titanium was still in its infancy. Useful discussions of developments are given by Bell Customize your page view by dragging and repositioning the boxes below. If nonwetting can be maintained e.
Citing articles are presented as examples only. It highlights the importance of using and validating the proper correction factors to predict and ensure optimum condenser performance and operation. Sign into or create your free personal account.
Significant developments in the HEI heat transfer correction factors since issuance of the 7 th edition pertain to stainless steel and titanium. Some tools below are only available to our subscribers or users with an online account.
For such models detailed correlations for local heat transfer and frictional pressure loss are required; developments in this complex field are reviewed by Davidson Since its founding over 80 years ago, the Institute has earned international recognition as the leading authority on the technologies for heat exchange and vacuum apparatus.
Again a wide variety of arrangements are in use incorporating baffled shell-and-tube, gasketed stsndards and spiral plate constructions and plate-fin exchangers. The Heat Exchange Institute HEI is a nonprofit trade association committed to the technical advancement, promotion, and understanding of a broad range of utility and industrial-scale heat exchange dor vacuum apparatus. The thermal hsi, F, of fouling on the coolant side is therefore an important consideration.
However, the Nusselt formulation is less successful in predicting tube nest mean heat transfer coefficient. From tononferrous alloys were generally the tube materials of choice for steam power plant surface condenser service. Click here to Renew Now. Fir some applications spirally grooved tubing has condeensers used to aid drainage of the condensate film and to increase internal heat transfer by turbulating the coolant flow.
This 12th edition of Standards for Steam Surface Condensers primarily updates the previous edition with new revisions and insights on FM tube material, gauge correction factors, pressure design equations, nuclear applications, condenser hotwells, atmosphere relief devices, vacuum breaker valves, condenser tube cleaning, steam inlet expansion joints, waterbox coating, lay-up procedure, and frequently asked questions.
The Institute concentrates its efforts on the manufacturing and engineering aspects of steam surface condensers, closed feedwater heaters, power plant heat exchangers, liquid ring vacuum pumps, steam jet ejectors, deaerators, and air cooled condensers.

The essential objective condenders surface condenser design is to provide equal access of vapor to all the surface. Surface condensers for process industries are usually smaller than power plant condensers and may contain a region for desuper-heating the incoming condenssrs.
Engrs SeptemberLondon. The Heat Exchange Institute HEI Standards for Steam Surface Condensers were promulgated to design and predict the performance of surface condensers for power plant applications by providing basic overall tube bundle heat transfer rates and correction factors to be applied to account for different tube diameters, wall thicknesses BWGtube materials, circulating water inlet temperatures and, average water velocities.
