Condensate Load from Heating Air

Condensate Load from Heating Air formula

\(\large{ m_c =   \frac  { 60 \; c_a   \; \gamma_a  \; Q_a  \;   \left(   T_o  -  T_i  \right)   }  { L_s }   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ m_c }\) = condensate load

\(\large{ Q_a }\) = air flow rate

\(\large{ T_i }\) = air inlet temperature

\(\large{ T_o }\) = air outlet temperature

\(\large{ c_a }\) = air specific heat

\(\large{ \gamma_a }\)  (Greek symbol gamma) = air specific weight

\(\large{ L_s }\) = steam latent heat
