Latent Heat Transfer Rate in a Pipeline help please

Hey guys, first post.

I'm trying to determine to the rate at which liquids drop out of a gas pipeline. I've modeled the system in a chemical process program, but its only a steady state model. Anyways, here's some of what I can get out of that program:

Heat of vaporization
Total Heat Transfer
Kinetic Energy Change
Potential Energy Change
Fluid Enthalpy Change

and all the fluid properties you can imagine.

I know about latent heat transfer and how to set it up the standard evaporation cooling scenario, where you have your energy balance for the air and one for the water. But in this case where potential and kinetic are changing as well, I'm not sure how to set up my energy balance(s). Don't want all "Total Heat Transfer" encompasses... I'm told that that includes any latent heat transfer and heat transfer between the pipe and its surroundings but I'm not sure. And don't get me started on Fluid Enthalpy change...

Please help.
