    Expecting an answer within 2 hours because you didn't pay attention in class is probably not the best way to get help here!

    Personally, I haven't a clue.

    I have never heard the term when used in this context.

    I found this:

    So how do you get rid of the condensation? Don't you recycle it somehow?

    hey thanks kach for the link, but it has nothing of drip disposal.
    anyways i got it now, i didnt sleep in the lecture today;))
    drip is the condensation of steam during the regeneration process. in closed type feed water heaters, bled steam condenses after giving off its energy to the feed water, that condensed steam is called drip. that is sent back to the main condenser.
    correct me if i am wrong somewhere

    Makes sense to me, but I'm no engineer.
