What is the difference between an intercooler and a condenser?


An intercooler is a cooler inside. It and the condenser are both coolers. Their functions and principles are the same, but their use position and purpose are different, so the name is different.


The condenser is an integral part of the four major refrigeration components (compressors, condensers, throttling devices and evaporators), in order to take away the cooling load of the evaporator and the heat generated by the compressor.


The purpose of the intercooler is to increase the cooling efficiency. Its purpose is to supercool the cooled refrigerant liquid and increase the cooling capacity. 


Of course, intercoolers in different systems have different roles. This is just a brief description of the difference between the condenser and the condenser in the refrigeration system.
