J2 Film Condensation of Binary Mixtures with and without Inert Gas
Gaseous substances in a specified thermodynamic state can be subdivided into vapors and inert gases. Vapors are condensable at the respective specified coolant temperatures, but inert gases are not. In the condensation of binary mixtures, both components may be vapors or one component may be an inert gas. In both cases, in addition to the heat transfer resistance in the condensate film, heat transfer and mass transfer resistances also occur in the gas phase, leading to a reduction of condensation.
