Working of Super heater: 

Super heater consist of group of tubes. Tubes are heated by absorbing temperature of flue gases passed over it . ‘Superheated steam’ is meant that steam which contains more heat than the saturated steam It is a heating device. It is used to raise temp of steam at const pressure. It removes even last traces of moisture.


Working of condenser: 

Function of condenser is to convert exhaust steam again into water by reducing its temperature with the help of cold water. OR Exhaust steam from turbine is passed to condenser where it is again converted into water by reducing temperature of steam with the help of cold water.OR In surface condenser cold water is passed through pipes and steam is passed over these pipes. So there in no direct contact between the steam and cooling water. Due to cold water steam is again converted into water called as condensate. This condensate is reused in boiler. This type of condenser is used for high capacity thermal power plant.
