I am trying to make a multiphase model which involves the condensation of n-heptane.
An issue that I run into in this case is that even for the simplest mass transfer mechanism (constant rate), the temperature of the fluid decreases. My from fluid is the liquid heptane and to liquid is heptane vapor.
Could someone please explain why the temperature decreases while for condensation the temperature should increase? And how can I resolve this problem?

If the gas is condensing, what density model did you use? Ie where does the extra volume come from if the system is sealed?

Thank you for your fast response.
It is an open system, the inflow is 3 kg/s (left) and the outlet is a pressure outlet (right).

I found that the standard state enthalpy for heptane vapour is -1.878e+08 j/kmol which causes the temperature decrease. Thanks for you attention.
