In this study Transport Membrane Condenser (TMC), a new waste heat and water recovery technology based on a nanoporous ceramic membrane vapor separation mechanism has been studied for waste heat and water recovery in power plant application. TMC is able to extract condensate pure water from the flue gas in the presence of other non-condensable gases (i.e. CO2, O2 and N2). The effects of mass flow rate of flue gas and water vapor content of flow on the heat transfer and condensation rate of a TMC shell and tube heat exchanger have been studied numerically. A single phase multi-component model is used to assess the capability of single stage TMC heat exchangers in terms of waste heat and water recovery at various inlet conditions. Numerical simulation has been performed using ANSYS-FLUENT software and the condensation rate model has been implemented applying User Define Function.
