Some typical applications for condenser coils:
- Heat Rejection
- Comfort Heating
Condenser Coils come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but there are some properties that are common in most condenser coils:
Considering the substantial surface area and significant temperature differential between air and refrigerant, condenser coils typically consist of a relatively modest number of rows. Typically, condenser coils are designed to be between 1 and 3 rows deep
The condenser coil must withstand considerable internal pressure, especially with refrigerants like R-410a, where working pressures can reach as high as 600 psia. Smaller tube diameters are better suited to reliably handle such pressure. Additionally, smaller tube diameters help maintain adequate refrigerant velocity, ensuring efficient oil circulation within the coil. For these reasons, we prefer to size condensers with 3/8″ tubes
For most refrigerant applications, copper sweat connections are the preferred choice. Other connection types are more susceptible to leaks, which can pose significant challenges when dealing with refrigerants.
