Forced convection air cooled refrigerant condenser (or “condenser”): A refrigeration system component that condenses refrigerant vapor by rejecting heat to air, which is mechanically circulated over its dry heat transfer surface by integral fans and fan drives. The heat transfer coil includes distributing and collecting headers (EN 327).
Forced convection unit air cooler (or “unit cooler”): Refrigeration system component transferring heat from air to a refrigerant or liquid. The air is mechanically circulated over the heat transfer surface by integral fan(s) and fan drive(s). The heat transfer coil includes refrigerant distributing and collecting headers (EN 328).
Forced convection air cooled liquid cooler (or “dry cooler”): A self contained system, that cools a single phase liquid by rejecting sensible heat via a heat exchanger to air that is mechanically circulated by integral fan(s) (EN 1048).
Air cooled refrigerant gas coolers: Refrigeration system component that cools the refrigerant (CO2) by rejecting heat to air, which is mechanically circulated over its dry heat transfer surface by integral fans and fan drives (EN 327).
NB: Dry coolers or condensers with adiabatic pre-coolers are included in the scope of the collection.
Data collections are organised annually since 2010.
The data is available in value (EUR) and in units with a split by type of product (air cooled condensers, coolers, CO2 gas coolers, and dry coolers).
