    Critical Temperature (Tc)

    The maximum temperature at which a gas can be converted into a liquid by an increase in

    Critical Pressure (Pc)

    The minimum pressure would suffice to liquefy a substance at its critical temperature. Above the critical pressure, increasing the temperature will not cause fluid to vaporize to give a two-phase system.

    Critical Point

    The characteristic temperature (Tc) and pressure (pc) above which a gas cannot be liquefied.

    Supercritical Fluid

    The defined state of a compound, mixture, or element above its critical pressure (Pc) and critical temperature (Tc).

    Reduced Temperature (Tr)

    The ratio of the temperature (T) in the system to the critical temperature (Tc) Tr = T/Tc

    Reduced Pressure (Pr)

    The ratio of the pressure in the system (P) to the critical pressure (Pc). Pr = P/Pc

    Saturated Steam Pressure Pv

    Saturated vapor pressure refers to the gas pressure (partial pressure) of a substance in a confined space at a given temperature when the liquid and vapor phases of the substance coexist. At this time, the evaporation and condensation process reaches dynamic equilibrium. Generally, the higher the temperature of the water, the higher the vapor pressure. When the pressure (partial pressure) of the gas is equal to the saturated vapor pressure, the corresponding temperature is called the dew point, and the relative humidity of the air at this time is 100%. At this time, if the temperature is lowered or the content of water vapor in the air is increased, water condensation will occur. The saturated vapor pressure of water can be determined according to the equation.

    What is SOV(solenoid valve) in Control Valve 

    Solenoid valves are often used in applications where a control valve is required to be actuated quickly to a fault position under certain conditions. It is generally designed to be in the air supply line and is an important accessory to the air control system.

    condensate recovery system

    Condensate Return System

    Condensate has a large amount of heat, generally accounting for about 20-30% of the total heat of steam, and for some equipment, it can be as high as 40%.  Therefore, if high-temperature condensate can be recycled as boiler make-up water or used for secondary flash steam, it not only saves industrial water but also saves a large amount of fuel.
