Dew Point of Acid Vapors


Sulfurous acid
1000/Tdp=2.276-0.0294 ln(PH2O)-.0858 ln(PSO3)+0.0062 ln(PH2O)ln(PSO3)
The dew points are in deg K and partial pressures in mm Hg.

tw=tg-(tg-ti)xhi/(hi+ho)
tw=average tube wall temperature
tg,ti= flue gas and air inlet temperatures
hi,ho= tube side and gas side heat transfer coefficients
In an air preheater ,hi and ho=10 & 15 Btu/ft2hF respectively.
