Learning Objectives

  • Describe the following terms as they relate to heat transfer:
    • Radiation
    • Conduction
    • Convection
  • Describe the difference between open feedwater and closed feedwater heaters and identify where each type of heater would be found in the condensate/feedwater system
  • Explain the basic components found in a condensate system and the flow path through the system

When you complete this lesson, you will be able to explain the basic components that make up a condensate and feedwater system and describe the flow path through those systems. In addition, you will be able to explain the difference between saturated steam and superheated steam and identify the factors that affect the quality of steam.
