Thermal Resistance of Steam Condensation in Horizontal Tube Bundles

  • Andrzej Grzebielec
  • Artur Rusowicz


This paper presents calculated heat transfer coefficients for water vapor condensation on horizontal tubes. The influence of vapor, cooling water and noncondensable gases properties on heat transfer process are presented. Two types of condensers are analysed. One of them is a power plant condenser. The second of them is an absorption refrigerator condenser where the working pair is water and Lithium Bromide (LiBr). Results for tubes selected from different places in tube banks from both types of condensers are compared.
