BACKGROUND
Heat exchangers are widely used in industry for heating process fluids. The figure shows a typical shell and tube heat exchanger. Steam piping carries steam from the boiler to the shell side of the heat exchanger. The steam heats the water flowing through the tubes. As the steam gives up its heat of vaporization, it condenses to form water. The water, or condensate, accumulates in the bottom of the shell. To reduce waste, the water is usually returned to the boiler. Generally, condensate from process heat exchangers, called condensate returns, is only a portion of the boiler feedwater.
