Condensate Load from Heating Air

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

formula

\(m_c =   \frac  { 60 c_a   \; \cdot \;   \gamma_a   \; \cdot \;  Q_a     \left(   T_o   \;   -   \;   T_i  \right)   }  { L }   \)

Where:

\(m_c\) = condensate load

\(c\) = specific heat

\(\gamma_a\) (Greek symbol gamma) = specific weight

\(Q_a\) = flow rate of air through piping

\(SG\) = specific gravity

\(T_i\) = liquid inlet temperature

\(T_o\) = liquid outlet temperature

\(L\) = latent heat of steam
