    Are you talking about calculating the approach temperature? Or is that something to do with absorbers? You mentioned absorbtion rate.

    Saturated condenser refgt temp minus leaving condenser water temp is most common. Can use leaving refgt - leaving water on condensers without subcoolers. Do a "search" on this subject at this site. Been many lengthy discussions in the past.

    Is this what you were looking for? Did you go on vacation and forget about us? limb1
