Example 2: Water and Oil Condensate
Condenser Pressure = 0 psia
Condensate Vessel= 14.7 psia
Condensed Liquid = Water/Oil Mixture at Density of 52 lb/ft
Condenser Height = 144 in
((14.7 psia - 0 psia)/
) = 41 ft
In this example the condenser has to be installed at an elevation at least 41 feet above the condensate vessel to ensure condensate does not flood up into the condenser. If the condensate is a mixture of water and condensed oil or some other material, then that impacts the density of the condensate and the minimum elevation requirement.
