By producing a vacuum at the turbine discharge, condensers increase the overall cycle efficiency. Graham has more than 70 years of design and fabrication experience in the steam surface condenser field. Our knowledge allows for an expedient, accurate design and fabrication process. Using design methodologies and practices that have been honed over time, we work closely with our customers to evaluate options that best meet each project’s objectives.
Graham Steam Surface Condensers range from small packaged units used in the HVAC industry to large cylindrical condensers used for mechanical drive applications in power plants, refineries, or chemical processing plants. Circular shells to approximately 12 feet in diameter can be supplied to suit a variety of requirements. Due to shipping restrictions and costs, larger applications are provided in modular rectangular designs where the tube bundles and dome sections are joined at the job site.
Because of our considerable experience in condenser manufacturing, our ability to work with exotic materials as well as turbines with different exhaust configurations (down, top, axial), Graham can closely work with customers to evaluate options that best meet the specific requirements of any project.
