General Considerations S Tubesheet Design Guidelines Condenser Tube Ends S Welding S Erection Superintendent Duties Condenser Tubes Stress Values Atmospheric Relief Valve Sizes The Eleventh Edition of"Standards for Steam Surface Condensers" has incorporated several new revisions since the Tenth Edition, such as new sample calculations for oxygen content and tubeside pressure drop, a new Section 4.

A listing of all HEI standards and condenser related technical articles is also listed on the inside cover of the standard for your convenience. Please visit the HEI website, www. The Heat Exchange Institute anticipates a continuing program to extend and amplify the coverage pre- sented in these Standards and this may require the periodic issuance of addenda to these Standards. As a result, users of these Standards should make sure that they are in possession of all such addenda by enquiry to the Heat Exchange Institute offices.

The Heat Exchange Institute solicits comments from all interested parties regarding areas where further treatment or more detailed treatment is desired or felt necessary. Contact the Institute at Sumner Ave. SHELL Circulating water velocity is the average velocity of circulating water through the tubes. Cleanliness factor is the ratio of the condenser heat transfer coefficient to the clean heat transfer 2. Hotwell capaci ty is condensate storage volume. The minimum recommended hotwell capacity is the 2.

Unless otherwise specified, condenser duty is assumed to be the quantity of 2. Condenser heat transfer coefficient is the average rate of heat transfer from the steam to circulating 2. Static pressure is the pressure of a fluid at rest.

The distribution of measurement points shall conform 2. Inlet Water Temperature. These variations, while negligible it flows around and through the tube bundle, and tube under some conditions, render the exact prediction inundation as condensate falls through the bundle.

In typical, commercial operating condenser is less than addition, terminal temperature differences of less that attainable in laboratory tests. Because second do not build up resistance sufficient to insure these values take into account parameters other than a uniform quantity of water through all the tubes; the basic heat transfer across the wall of the tube, therefore, condenser performance under such condi- they are not meant to be used by designers as specific tions cannot be exactly predicted and such predictions individual tube "U'' values.

The Heat Exchange Institute has conducted tests for the purpose of arriving at heat transfer coefficients 4. The following is the Heat racy expected in steam condensers, the effect of sea Exchange Institute's method for calculating condenser or brackish water as opposed to fresh water is com- heat transfer coefficients. Other methods of calculating paratively insignificant with respect to performance.

The arrangement and location of all Step 1: Determine the condenser shellside pressure entrance points into the condenser for water vapor based on the circulating water inlet temperature and or other gases should be subject to the approval of condenser duty.

This information may be found by the Manufacturer. Step 8: Once this temperature is found, move vertically 4. Step 4: Move horizontally to the left to find the cor- responding pressure in inches ofHg.

These ratios are for venting equipment rated at 1 in. HgA suction pressure and a temperature of The oxygen content values shown in Figure 3 are only valid if the provisions from Section 4.

The Heat Exchange Institute has conducted a field survey of a number of condensers for Boiling Water Reactor power plants and has reached the conclusion that condensate oxygen levels of ppb over a fairly wide range of operation are to be expected with this type of plant.

This factor increases the impor- tance of eliminating sources of noncondensible gases in the hotwell area Par. The restrictions of para- graph 4. Figure4 4.

The distance from hotwell high water level to the bottom tubes will be recommended by the manufacture, which will allow main exhaust steam to effectively reheat the falling droplets, thereby returning their temperature as close to saturation conditions as possible.
