    Smile Possible ways to condense steam at 0.7 bar, 60 deg Celsius



    Hi All!!!!

    I am a student & working on project related to water cooled condensers.

    I have stuck at a point for which i wanted to know the possible ways of condensing a steam from a condenser into water without using another condenser.

    Thanks in Advance!!!!

    Sajay,

    I don't know if I have understood your question.

    Do you want to perform at 100% the condensation of a steam mass flow which wasn't concluded on the condenser?

    You may increase the steam pressure if possible. So the condenser will delivery more capacity since the stem saturation pressure will be higher and so a bigger heat exchanger efficiency will be accomplished.

    To make progress is never good enough, I want to do better and better and better

    ???
    Something doesn't add up in your question, sorry.

    @ 0.7 Bar(abs) the boiling point of water is about 90*C
    @ 0.7 Bar(rel) (=1.7 Bar (abs)) the boiling point of water is about 115*C

    Your steam at 0.7 Bar (whichever measurement you used) and 60*C is therefore already condensed in to water and can therefore not be condensed any further, sub cooled yes but that wasn't the question.

    So, any chance you can elaborate a bit further? Perhaps tell us the application you are looking at?

    However,
    One way of condensing low temp/medium pressure steam in to water is to introduce it in to a body of water, providing the basin is designed properly (deep enough) the steam will condensate before it reaches the surface.
