Steam condensation for the chemical industry

Waste steam from various processes in a chemical plant often needs to be cooled. 


This can be achieved by spraying cold water into the steam flow.  The spray then acts as a very high surface area heat exchanger and will rapidly cool and condense the steam back to a liquid state.  In many cases the resulting warm water is then used for other applications in the factory.



Nozzle selection criteria

• Full cone nozzles for maximum spray coverage
• Spray patterns at low pressures to minimise pump duty
• Corrosion resistant material
