In a steam power plant a steam condenser is used to condense the exhaust steam from the low-pressure turbine. When the steam condenser uses water as the cooling medium and is designed like a shell-and-tube heat exchanger, it is called a surface condenser. When the steam condenser uses air as the cooling medium and is designed like a radiator, it is called an air-cooled condenser (ACC).
