condensation temperature

condensation temperature

[‚kän·dən′sā·shən ′tem·prə·chər]
(analytical chemistry)
In boiling-point determination, the temperature established on the bulb of a thermometer on which a thin moving film of liquid coexists with vapor from which the liquid has condensed, the vapor phase being replenished at the moment of measurement from a boiling-liquid phase.
(meteorology)
The temperature at which a parcel of moist air expanded dry adiabatically reaches saturation. Also known as adiabatic condensation temperature; adiabatic saturation temperature.

Most commonly used controls modulate the condenser fans to keep the head pressure within a specified range (fixed head pressure or saturated condensation temperature set-point).
The exhaust gas is then a mixture of non-condensable gases like nitrogen and carbon dioxide, with some condensable vapors like pure water vapor and some acid-water mixtures with different condensation temperature levels.
However, as you go up in an atmosphere the temperature decreases, and at some point the temperature drops below the condensation temperature of a component.
The freon condensation temperature [t.sub.fc], allowing to estimate the enthalpy [h.sub.3] and pressure [P.sub.c] of freon at the evaporator's exit,
Considering the instability of solar heat source, the generation temperature [T.sub.boi] is in the range of 60-160[degrees]C, the condensation temperature is 35-45[degrees]C, and the evaporation temperature is -5[degrees]C and keeps being invariable.
Moreover it is able to control the condensation temperature and thus the heating capacity.
The first observed influence of the condensation temperature on the formation of the composite was related to the time needed to reach the final value of 1/1 g/g dilutability in water.
Figure 1 shows the microstructure of the Fe-Cu MLC with the calculated thickness of the iron microlayers of d = 0.23 (m, with the volume fraction of iron [f.sub.Fe] = 0.41, produced at the condensation temperature of the substrate of [T.sub.s] = 600[degrees]C.
With the TS20-M, flash steam is eliminated and actual steam consumption is drastically reduced thanks to the low condensation temperature. The exchanger is capable of operating with liquid flow rates of up to 190 kg/s and heat water using steam up to 15Mw with steam at a condensation temperature of 150[degrees]C.
The largest size has a capacity of 2.5 to 15 MW at a steam condensation temperature of 300[degrees]F and 2.5 to 9 MW at a steam condensation temperature of 248[degrees]F.
The most commonly used condensation temperature of 0 C is reached in less than 10 minutes from ambient 25 C.
