When purchasing an environmental chamber, there are usually two cooling options to choose from: air-cooled and water-cooled. Do you know the difference between these two methods and how to choose the cooling method?
Introduction of Condenser
1.What is refrigeration?
The process of cooling an object to a desired temperature using mechanical equipment.
2.The function of the condenser:
The condenser uses air-cooled or water-cooled method to cool the high-temperature and high-pressure gaseous refrigerant formed by the compressor into a liquid refrigerant to achieve the effect of cooling the refrigerant. More at Wikipedia
Compare with Water-cooled and Air-cooled Condenser
Note: There are two types of water-cooled condensers, one is water-cooled unit: the cooling water can be recycled for one year, which is more environmentally friendly. The other is a water tower: cheap to build, but needs to be cleaned once a week.
How to Choose a Suitable Cooling Method?
1.Small environmental chambers usually choose air-cooled.
2.For areas with colder climates in winter, considering the possibility of freezing, it is generally recommended to choose air-cooled.
3.Consult with professionals in the environmental chamber industry.
4.KOMEG customizes solutions for you:
- Customers put forward requirements.
- KOMEG further inquires customers: environmental conditions, test products, etc.
- Check whether existing products and previous product solutions meet customer needs.
- Provide customers with proposals based on their budget.
All in all, air-cooled and water-cooled condensers have similar functions. Whether you choose air-cooled or water-cooled condensers, you should choose according to the actual use environment of the environmental chamber and the testing requirements of the product.
