Condenser is a heat transfer unit that helps to transfer heat to cool down refrigerant discharged by compressor. The temperature of a condenser coil is ranging from 70°C (for heating purpose) to 40°C in a refrigeration system.
Condenser coil is made of multiple row copper tubes insert through compact fins with direct drive fan. It is normally installed with compressor and placed outdoor. It can be the condenser for outdoor of a split unit air conditioning, a condenser of big tonnage chiller unit for Air Handling Unit (AHU) or a condenser for cold room (temperature ranging from 10°C to -25°C) condensing unit. An air cooled condenser means that a condenser coil uses fan to draw ambient air through to bring out the heat from refrigerant in it.
Condenser coil has various design. It can be in a straight vertical & horizontal shape, “L” shape, “V” shape or “U” shape.
