Dropwise Filmwise Condensation Apparatus.
Dropwise Filmwise Condensation Apparatus
Condensation is a phase change heat transfer process occurring in
many industrial applications, such as in steam power plants,
refrigeration plants etc
Thus this is one of the important heat
transfer process present in mechanical and chemical engineering
application. The condensation of Vapour on a surface is of two types: 1.
Drop wise Condensation. 2. Film wise Condensation. This set up is
designed for finding heat transfer co-efficient of two types of
condensation and for visualization of these processes. It consists of a
vertical frame. Condensation tubes are fitted inside compact glass
cylinder. Steam generator is fitted at the backside of the cylinder.
Steam comes directly from generator to cylinder. Two valves are fitted
to control flow rate of water in individual tubes. Digital Temperature
Indicator monitors temperatures. Pressure gauge and Rotameter can
observe steam pressure and cold, water flow rates respectively. A
Digital temperature Controller is provided for controlling the
temperature of Steam. Water level indicator is provided to safeguard the
heater. Condensate is measured by measuring cylinder.
To study the Film wise & Drop wise condensation of steam on a vertical surface
Visualization of condensation process in drop wise as well as film wise
Water supply 5 lit/min (approx.)
