Description:

Vertical & Horizontal Condenser (Water to Water)

Shell & Tube type condensers are widely used in various industries. The present set-up offers us a comparative study of Vertical & Horizontal condenser, which can be operated simultaneously. Condensers are fabricated Stainless steel shell, inside which SS tubes are fitted. Cold fluid enters from one end of the tubes and come out of the other. Hot Water from a hot water bath is pumped to the one end of shell passes over the cold-water tubes. Valves are provided to control the flow rates of hot & cold fluids.

Flow rate of hot & cold water is measured by using Rotameters. Temperature of inlet and outlet of both hot & cold fluids are measured by temperature sensors.
