Condenser, a part of a refrigeration system, is a type of heat exchanger that transforms gas or vapor to a liquid, transfers heat from the tube to the air near the tube in a very rapid manner. Condenser work process is an exothermic process, so the condenser temperature is high.
Power plants use many condensers to condense the steam for the turbine discharges. Condensers are used to condense refrigeration vapors, such as ammonia and freons, in a refrigeration plant. Condensation of hydrocarbons and other chemical vapors in the petrochemical industry. Devices that convert steam to liquid during distillation are also known as condensers. All of the condensers operate by taking away the heat of the gas or vapor.
