Power plants play the critical role of ensuring energy security in most countries. Condensers are important parts of any power plant. They cool the steam from turbines and condense it into water before returning it back to the boiler. The amount of power generated is comparable to the difference between the steam temperatures. To increase the power plant efficiency and turbine output, maintaining the condenser in low operating pressure is important. Good thermal conductivity and large surface area of the tubes are crucial in maximizing the thermal transmission while minimizing the condensate temperature. However, one of the challenges faced is the inability to obtain reliable tubes of steam condensers...
