Heat transfer measurements are reported for condensation of refrigerant-113 and ethanediol (ethylene glycol) on a single horizontal tube with vertical downflow. For refrigerant-113, vapor velocities up to around 6 m/s were obtained, while for ethanediol, velocities in excess of 100 m/s were obtained at low pressure. The results are compared with those of earlier investigators and with theory.
