Condensers are used to recover large amounts of steam that may
otherwise be vented to the atmosphere. During fluctuating steam loads,
turbine trip off, turbine start-up, or bypass, the excess steam that
would ordinarily be vented can be diverted to a dump condenser. Dump
Condensers may also be used for process plants when upset demand
- Water-cooled and Air-cooled Dump Condensers
- Fabrication and design typically to Heat Exchange Institute Standard (HEI), ASME Code,
and can include TEMA, Seismic Codes, and other specifications.
- Designs to eliminate excessive vibrations and water hammer
materials are carbon steel with stainless steel tubes. Special
materials are available for severe duty or other applications.
Condenser can be furnished as a system which may consist of Steam
Pressure/Temperature Reducing Station and Condensate Recovery System
which includes Level Controls, Condensate Pump, and Electrical Control
Panel for automatic operation.
