The present paper describes an approach to the numerical modeling of the condensation on the cooled surfaces of the air driven heat pump heat exchangers. The approach is based upon the classical nucleation theory and on a continuous growth law which are the necessary inputs for the simplified population balance equation solved by the quadrature method of moments. An example result is presented where one of the models' parameters: the driving force, is varied. The influence of the driving force on the condensate rates of a simple condensing heat exchanger is shown.
