1. In uniflow engines, steam will enter at one end and exhaust through the centre of the engine.
2. The Temperature of the condensate will be lower than the temp of the water inlet.
3. The simple vertical boiler has only one fire tube.

The temperature of the condensate will be higher than the temperature of the water outlet.

So 2. Is wrong your statement.
