Steam Surface Condenser
Steam Surface Condenser is designed to condense and deaerate the exhaust steam from the turbine. In surface condensers, there is no direct contact between the exhaust steam and the cooling water. The exhausted steam from the turbines is condensed by passing over tubes containing water from the cooling system. The steam condenses when it comes in contact with the cold surface of the tubes and due to the heat transfer to cooling water by conduction and convection. These tubes are usually made of stainless steel, copper alloys, or titanium depending on several selection criteria (such as thermal conductivity or corrosion resistance).
Steam Surface Condenser are to convert the exhaust steam from its gaseous to its liquid state at certain under atmospheric pressure, and also, to release non-condensable presented in the steam cycle, together with vacuum unit.
Because plants need steam surface condensers with long equipment life and low maintenance requirements, Relevant solutions partners with our company to provide the most reliable steam surface condensers available, with the capacity to condense turbine exhaust steam at very low pressures. Steam surface condensers are used in power generation, refining and chemical processing applications to create and maintain a vacuum at the turbine exhaust. The exhaust steam is converted into condensate and then pumped back to the boiler to complete the closed loop process.
Steam surface condensers are offered for power plants ranging in output from 3 MW to 125 MW and in the following configurations
- Cylindrical, or Rectangular
- Axial or Down or Top Exhaust
- One Pass or Multi-Pass
Steam surface condenser is designed in accordance with the client’s specifications to offer the highest thermal efficiency and structural integrity. The thermal, hydraulic and mechanical aspects of the condenser are designed using state-of-the-art-technology. The design is in accordance with the following codes and standards: Heat Exchange Institute (HEI) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
