How does a condenser coil work?

Condenser is a machine of the air-conditioning system, which can transmit the heat in the pipe to the air near the pipe in a very fast way. Most cars place the condenser in front of the tank. Condensers are devices that convert gas or vapor into liquid. Power plants use many condensers to condense the steam that the turbine discharges. Condensers are used to condense refrigeration vapors, such as ammonia and freons, in a refrigeration plant. Condensers are used in the petrochemical industry to condense hydrocarbons and other chemical vapors. Devices that convert steam to liquid during distillation are called condensers. All of the condensers operate by taking away the heat of the gas or vapor. 

The compressor draws in the lower-pressure working medium vapor coming out of the evaporator, causing it to rise in pressure and then to the condenser. Steam condensed in the condenser into a higher pressure liquid, throttling throttle to become a lower pressure liquid, was sent to the evaporator. Finally, it absorbs heat in the evaporator and evaporates into lower-pressure steam to complete the refrigeration cycle.

For some applications, the gas must pass through a long tube (usually a solenoid) to dissipate the heat to the surrounding air. Conductive metals such as copper are often used to transport steam. In order to improve the efficiency of the condenser, people often attach heat sinks on the pipes to accelerate the heat dissipation. Heat sink is made of good thermal conductivity of the metal plate. Such condensers generally use fans to force the air through the heatsinks and remove the heat away. In the general refrigerator cooling principle, the role of the compressor is to compress the lower pressure steam into higher pressure steam, so that the steam volume decreases, the pressure increases.
