Air Cooled Steam Condensers

A steam condenser is a heat exchanger installed at the end of a steam turbine in power generation plants. The condenser converts the exhaust steam from the turbine to its liquid state so that it can be returned to the turbine boiler unit or used elsewhere in the cycle. In an air cooled steam condenser, air is moved over the heat exchanger tubes to carry away the heat released during the condensation process.
