The Heat Exchange Institute has formed an air-cooled condenser section.

The institute is currently working on the development of an air-cooled condenser standard.

The standard will address such subjects as design considerations for air-cooled condensers, condenser performance and operation, instrumentation and control, service connections, and venting equipment, as well as other technical information on air-cooled condensers. Officials anticipate releasing the new standard sometime in late 2010.
