9.2.1  Tubenest layout


All UK condenser manufacturers recognise the need to optimise the design of condenser tubenest layouts by computer analysis techniques, in order to realise improvements in thermodynamic efficiency.

Details of a condenser optimisation programme presently under development are outlined in Section 5 of this chapter, which also covers the design of plant components to minimise air blanketing, and steamside pressure losses in the tubenest.
