The sugary liquid (called wash or distiller's beer) is fermented and distilled (a process of heating the wash to vaporize the alcohol, then cooling it so the gas condenses and forms clear drops of distilled spirit).
O Smith, is a residential gas-condensing water heater that combines an advanced internal heat exchanger with 100,000 Btu input resulting in a state-of-the-art water heater with money-saving 96 percent thermal efficiency, the company says.
Air infiltration of buildings causes significant heating/cooling energy loss and permits moisture and condensation to collect in the walls.

Compared to absorption imaging it causes much less heating, and hence, allows the recording of non-destructive real-time “movies” of the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates .
Comment on the paper: Quantum backaction of optical observations on Bose-Einstein condensates by U. Leonhardt, T. Kiss, and P. Piwnicki, Eur. Phys. J. D7, 413 (1999)
X-ray imaging observations have shown that the X-ray emitting, hot gas in a large fraction of all galaxy clusters reaches high enough densities in the cluster centers that the cooling time of the gas falls below the Hubble time, and gas may cool and condense in the absence of a suitable fine-tuned heating source (e.g.
The New Emerging Model for the Structure of Cooling Cores in Clusters of Galaxies
To decrease the mass condensation under energy conservation some form of heating is clearly necessary.
The New Emerging Model for the Structure of Cooling Cores in Clusters of Galaxies
If the cooling exceeds the heating, there will be a steady condensation of hot gas onto the cool cloud; if the heating dominates, there will be evaporation.
The Phenomena of High Energy Astrophysics
One potential problem common to all the mixtures is the diminished heat exchange capability of bosons when approaching condensation.

As steam is generated, it is condensed on tubes of heat exchangers that run through each stage.

Our first main conclusion is that the excitonic insulator is the perfect insulator in terms of both charge and heat transport, with an unusually high resistance at the interface with a semimetal— the normal phase of the condensed state.
Coherent exciton transport in semiconductors
The former has huge latent heat, few GeV /f m3, so that probably all of the non-perturbative vacuum energy density (proportional to the “gluon condensate”) is “melted” in it.

The temperature of a trapped sample, and thus its condensate fraction, is set by a competition between heating and cooling, as described in section A.2.1.
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Atomic Hydrogen
Here we study the rate of heating the system due to dipolar decay in the condensate and in the thermal gas.
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Atomic Hydrogen
We find that for hydrogen the condensate heat load exceeds the thermal gas heat load at condensate fractions of 0.3%.
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Atomic Hydrogen
We wish to find the ratio of the heating rates due to dipolar decay from the condensate (Hc ) and from the thermal cloud (Ht) as a function of the occupation fraction f .
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Atomic Hydrogen
This means that heating of the sample due to losses from the condensate becomes a very significant problem even when the condensate is still quite small.
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Atomic Hydrogen
As explained in section 2.3.2.1, the effective heating rate of the system is thus higher in the center 10% of the length of the trap where the condensate lives.
