Energy Calculations for Return Condensate

Returning condensate to the boiler operation is great step toward improving energy efficiency. But how do you know if the costs are justified? An example can demonstrate the process. Table 1 shows the operating criteria for a typical operating steam system.

For the purposes of this example, assume no condensate returned to the boiler plant. In that case:
