Optimizing Heat Transfer in Steam Heating Systems

Optimizing Heat Transfer in Steam Heating Systems

Optimum performance of a steam-heat-exchanger process requires a certain set of design conditions, equipment in good working order, and proper ambient conditions.

Has your facility experienced a steam-system (air heater, fuel-oil heater, water heater, or platen-type press) heating problem that engineering and maintenance has been unable to resolve? This article provides a practical and theoretical discussion about improving steam systems.

Steam Quality and Heat Transfer

Steam is a gas consisting of water vapor. The vapor contains a significant amount of thermal energy commonly measured in British thermal units. In many facili
