Browse Condenser Heat Exchangers

In machinery, a Condenser Heat Exchanger is any system where a fluid is heated to a vapor and then is condensed down the line of a tube network and then heat is transferred to one side of an array and cold is transferred to another side of a system. The gaseous form of the fluid transfers heat to fins or an external fluid such as a water bath, and then it becomes very cold when it collapses back into a fluid.

A condenser involves either a pressure pump or convection. In the case of a pressure pump, the fluid is compressible even after condensing and so carries extra heat created by the pressure pump. That heat is quickly dispersed to fins, with the result that the refrigerant becomes much colder than the ambient air temperature. In a convection system, the fluid captures and disperses heat without becoming cooler than ambient temperature.
