Abstract : In an effort to explore the possibility of building compact naval steam condensers, an experimental apparatus was designed and constructed to study enhanced condensation heat transfer of steam on horizontal tubes. Special care was taken to ensure a leak-tight apparatus so that the non-condensable gas content of the steam can be kept to a few parts-per-million. The boiler and steam piping is made of glass and stainless steel with rubber gaskets. Copper is used for the condensing tubes. The completed system has been tested satisfactorily at full power.
