How does a condenser coil work in Air Conditioner?

Air Conditioner:

Jun 14, 2017 · 2 min read

Air conditioning often referred to as AC, is the method of removing heat from a closed surface, hence cooling the air, and removing humidity. Air conditioning used in both residential and industrial environments. The air conditioner is used to cool rooms filled with heat-producing devices, such as computer servers, and power amplifiers.

What is Condenser?

The condenser is a device in the air conditioner which used to condense a substance from gaseous to the liquid state by cooling it.


How does it work?

The condenser coil is where the heat gets removed. The consolidating unit (some of the time inaccurately known as compressor) is situated outside. Its original capacity is that of a warmth exchanger, in which it gathers a substance (refrigerant) from it’s vaporous to the molten state. From that point, the latent heat is surrendered by the content and will exchange to the condenser coolant. In the refrigeration cycle, a warmth pump transfers warm from a low-temperature close source into a higher temperature warm sink.

Working of Condenser in Air Conditioner

Warm streams the other way as a result of the second law of thermodynamics. The most well-known of the refrigeration cycles utilizes an electric engine to drive a compressor (situated inside the consolidating unit). Since dissipation happens when warmth is retained, and buildup occurs when heat is discharged, aeration and cooling systems are intended to utilize a compressor to cause weight changes between two compartments, and effectively draw refrigerant around.

Inside the condenser, the refrigerant vapor is compacted and constrained through a warmth trade loop, gathering it into a fluid and dismissing the heat already retained from the cold indoor zone. The condenser’s heat exchanger is for the most part cooled by a fan blowing outside air through it.
