: Where is the best place to send condensate from the steam header? It is going to the drain.
Without a doubt the best thing to do with your condensate is to recover it in feedwater heater or deaerator.
Condensate makes the best make-up for your deaerator. Not only are you recovering the thermal energy but the condensate is soft and there is practically no conductivity which reduces boiler blowdown. Depending on the length of your steam header, condensate return stations can be used to collect the condensate and pump it back to the deaerator or feedwater heater.
I hope this helps.
