In horizontal condensers, flashing sometimes occurs downstream in the condensate discharge system. Incorporating a certain amount of subcooling may ensure that flashing does not occur. This webinar reviews HTRI’s subcooling and nozzle-sizing recommendations for condenser design and presents a method for calculating the condensate height in partially flooded units. The webinar concludes with a worked example highlighting the issues covered.
