This paper deals with the flooding velocities of the reflux condensers with various inclinations.The flooding phenomena and two-phase flow patterns in such condensers have been observed. A physical and a mathematical models for calculating flooding velocities are developed, which agree well with the experimental data. The flooding velocity in an inclined reflux condenser varies with the inclination and may reach the maximum value when the inclination is between 30° and 50°.
