All About Condensing Units for Non-Experts

If you are the head of the purchasing department on an SME then it isn’t necessary to be an expert or to be an engineer to realize buying the right equipment. Even without expert technical knowledge, you can purchase the right refrigeration equipment and its units efficiently.

To understand what each piece of equipment does and things you need to look for while talking to the sellers regarding your project helps you in avoiding making the wrong choice. Therefore, if you are looking for condensing units, you must understand what a condensing unit actually does.

What is a condensing unit?

Condensing unit is one of the most essential equipment pieces of the refrigeration system as it rejects the entirety of the heat of the system that includes heat absorption by the evaporator as well as heat production by the energy entrance to the compressor.

The systems that involve heat transfer use condensing units are used to condense a substance from its gaseous state to its liquid state. Such appliances are the ones that transform refrigerant gas from its gaseous state to liquid state for continuing the refrigeration cycle. While doing so latent heat gets abandoned by the substance and transferred to the surrounding ambiance.

What is the economic impact of the condensing unit?

The condensing unit is the great saver of your refrigeration system by recycling refrigerant gas. It also prevents consuming and spending in this substance each time you need your products cooled.

What are the applications of condensing units?

Condensing units are created depending upon a number of designs and these come in a variety of sizes as per their application. For instance, condensing units used in a refrigerator eliminate the heat extracted from the unit and sends it outside.

Condensing units are used in air conditioners and in chemical procedures such as distillation, steam power stations, and several other heat exchanging systems. Commonly, the refrigeration water or surrounding air is used in many condensers.

What builds a condensing unit?

A condensing unit is usually used in HVACR systems i.e. heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems are composed of:

  • A heat exchange sector for cooling and condensing vapor impending from the liquid refrigerant.
  • A compressor for elevating the pressure of the refrigerant and move it.
  • A ventilator for cooling the internal refrigerant by moving the outside air via the exchanger.

Where to locate a condensing unit?

Certain condensing units are located outside the building they are trying to cool off with the help of the tubes that go from the unit to the building.

What are the different types of condensing units?

There are three different types of condensing units –

  • Air-Cooled
  • Water-Cooled
  • Steam Cooled
