German term or phrase: Enthitzung
shown as one part of a "realer Kaltdampfprozeß", among the following:
Überhitzung mit Druckverlust
polytrope Verdichtung
Enthitzung mit Druckverlust
Verflüssigung mit Druckabfall
Unterkühlung mit Druckabfall
Entspannung mit Druckabfall

English translation:energy / heat withdrawal
Explanation:
Literally "withdrawal of heat". It is one of the working phases of a thermal energy engine, which is used to convert heat into movement or to transport heat to a place where it would not normally go.
In this phase, steam or hot gas is cooled - energy is withdrawn from it, and its pressure falls, but it still remains gaseous.

Only in the next working phase is the gas cooled to a point where it condenses into a fluid.

See below


Explanation:
0. Real evaporation cooling process

1. overheating with pressure loss

2. politropic isolation

3. heat exchange with pressure loss

4. melting/liquefaction with fall in pressure

5. undercooling with fall in pressure

6. expansion with fall in pressure

7. evaporation with pressure loss

That´s it. Next time try to ask for less terms.

Good luck.

vapour cooling to above the dew point


Explanation:
I believe that "Enthitzung" refers to the proces of cooling off the vapour to the temperature just above the dew point, when it condenses.
