Condensate Tanks - Dedicated to the Exploration and ...

Condensate Tanks Some natural gas and oil wells produce a semi-liquid condensate along with the gas. Condensates are hydrocarbons that are in a gaseous state within the reservoir (prior to production), but become liquid during the production process and are composed of hydrocarbons, as well as aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, xylenes and ethylbenzene (BTEX).

Plant Engineering A quick guide to condensate recovery

Oct 28, 2013  One of the best energy-saving measures for most steam systems is returning condensate to the boiler instead of dumping it to drain. Installing condensate recovery systems or enhancing existing systems are highly effective in improving steam plant efficiency. Here’s an overview of condensate recovery and why it deserves your attention.
