Condenser Heat Exchanger is very common in process industry, condensers may be classified in two main types; Condensers which have a coolant and a condensing vapor brought into direct contact and other types which have the coolant and a condensate stream separated by a tube wall or a solid surface.
This Software deals with the type where the streams are separated when condensation occurs inside or outside the tubes.
Condenser Heat Exchanger Software Features (CnD)
- Support S.I Units and English (U.S) Units of measurement, Units converter containing 23 measurements and 200 units conversions
- Import physical properties data to hot side and cold side from Microsoft Excel & from WeBBusterZ Physical properties database included.
- Estimate the Physical properties of pure components for more than 1450 components; the database has the ability to estimate Thermal Conductivity, Density, Heat Capacity and Viscosity. The database also included critical properties, boiling and melting points and come as separate software but easily integrated with the software.
