The standard will address such subjects as design considerations for air-cooled condensers, condenser performance and operation, instrumentation and control, service connections, and venting equipment, as well as other important technical information on air-cooled condensers. The Air Cooled Condenser Section anticipates releasing the new standard sometime in late 2010.
The Heat Exchange Institute (HEI) is a non-profit trade association committed to the technical advancement, promotion, and understanding of a broad range of utility and industrial-scale heat exchange and vacuum apparatus. The Institute concentrates its efforts on the manufacturing and engineering aspects of steam surface condensers, closed feedwater heaters, power plant heat exchangers, liquid ring vacuum pumps, air cooled condensers, steam jet ejectors, and deaerators.
Since its founding more than 60 years ago, the Institute has earned international recognition as the leading authority on the technologies for heat exchange and vacuum apparatus. Institute standards are used throughout the world for the design, manufacture, and operation of heat exchange and vacuum equipment.
