In a cooling cycle of a refrigeration system, heat is absorbed by the vapor refrigerant in the evaporator followed by the compression of the refrigerant by the compressor. The high pressure and high temperature state of the vapor refrigerant is then converted to liquid at the cond. It is designed to condense effectively the compressed refrigerant vapor.
Condensers apply pressure to gas until it becomes a liquid--forcing energy out as heat--and then circulate the cooled liquid through a closed system, where it absorbs heat as it returns to the compressor.
There are basically three types of condensing unit depending on how the heat is removed by the condensing medium which is usually water, air or a combination of both.Condensing units are familiar temperature-control devices in refrigerators, air conditioners, heat pumps and chillers. They move energy in the form of heat by compressing a gas known as a "refrigerant," then pumping it through a system of coils and using the air around the coils to heat and cool spaces. Electronic controls, fans, pumps and coils manage the condenser's work.
