I just read some pages on **Handbook of Chemical Engineering Calculations 2nd edition**, written by Nicholas P. Chopey and got interested in calculation of condensate load in order to determine the capacity of steam trap. I will take one example, where the steam indirectly heats a liquid through metallic surface, as in heat exchanger and kettles.

**Case I**

For example, we have 1892.5 L of water heated in 30 min from 22.2 to 100 ^{o}C with 50-psig (344.7-kPa) steam in the jacket of kettle. **How much condensate formed?**

For normal warm up load, the quantity of condensate can be calculated by the following equation: Read More
