How many types of condenser?

- Jun 08, 2018-

The condenser is classified into four different categories.


1. Water cooled condenser, in this type of condenser, the heat released by the refrigerant is taken away by the cooling water, Cooling water can be used once, or it can be used cyclically.

Water cooling condensers can also be divided into vertical shell tubes, horizontal shell tubes, and tube types according to their different structures.

2.  Air cooled condenser is also called air cooling. In this type of condenser, the heat released by the refrigerant is carried by the air. The air can be natural convection, and the fan can also be used as a forced flow.

This type of condenser system is used in Freon refrigeration units where water is inconvenient.

3. Water-air-cooled, in this kind of condenser, the refrigerant will also receive water and air cooling, but mainly rely on the evaporation of cooling water on the hot surface of the heat transfer tube

A large amount of heat is absorbed from one side of the refrigerant as the latent heat of vaporization of water, and the air is mainly used to accelerate the evaporation of water and take away the water vapor, so this kind of condensation is rarely used in the consumption of water.

For air-drying, water quality and water temperature is low and the water is not enough for the area is worth choosing, this type of condenser according to the structure of the different can also be divided into evaporation and shower.


4. Evaporative condenser, in this kind of condenser is dependent on another refrigeration system of refrigerant evaporation cooling effect of cooling heat partition to the other side of the refrigerant vapor, prompting the latter condensation and liquefaction, such as pile type refrigerants of evaporative condenser
