Condensate Load from Heating Air

Condensate Load from Heating Air formula

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

Where:

\(m_c\) = condensate load

\(Q_a\) = air flow rate

\(T_i\) = air inlet temperature

\(T_o\) = air outlet temperature

\(c_a\) = air specific heat

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

\(L_s\) = steam latent heat
