Evaporative condensers discharge refrigerant and air-conditioning heat, and consume minimal energy and water. They combine a cooling tower and a refrigerant condenser in a single unit and offer the following
- Initial cost savings: cooling tower, condenser surface, water pump and piping in a single equipment unit
- Low system operating costs: low condensing temperatures for a more compact compressor using less power
- Low refrigerant charge, costs and environmental impact minimized
- Space-saving: up to 50 % area savings compared to comparable air-cooled installations.
These units evaporate a fraction of the water, eliminating refrigerant heat and condensing within the coil.
A small portion of the water is evaporated, removing the heat from the refrigerant and condensing it inside the coil. This saves up to 95% of the water compared with a once-through condensing system.
Air cooled condensers with adiabatic pre-coolers
Here, the air is adiabatically pre-cooled, boosting dry condensing capacity by up to 40%. Requires less power and area than conventional air-cooled condensers.
- Limited water usage: short and limited periods of adiabatic operation
- No water treatment: once-through system
- Excellent dry condensing capacity: air pre-cooled to wet bulb temperature via adiabatic pre-coolers
