Ability to use RF and NF models with 12mm tube can reduce cost and refrigerant charge
GEA Searle has launched the RF and NF ranges air cooled condensers featuring new designs for lighter weight and lower cost.
The new generation of condenser can use 12mm tube that reduces cost and refrigerant charge, and features casing specifically designed for increased strength with reduced weight, along with a reduction in air flow. The manufacturer says it has used market-leading technologies for coil, case, fans and production techniques.
The RF range of fully weather-proofed air cooled condensers is suitable for a wide variety of applications, Searle says, with a duty range of 26.9 kW to 1166 kW. These capacities can be achieved both in flat-bed horizontal and vertical configurations.
A range of fanset options is available, including the 910 mm EC version, which enables a highly efficient, very low noise complete fan speed-control package, the firm says, as well as optimising selection for coil resistance giving significant savings in power consumption.
The NF range of air cooled condensers has been designed for use with ammonia, offering a duty range of 11 kW to 1270 kW and featuring stainless steel coil and header tubes.
The NF range of condensers is available with all the same options as for the RF range - from EC fan technology to adiabatic spray systems to the Searle controls packages.
The NF units operate to standard EN 327:2000 conditions, with the main discrepancy from R404A and R507 being that the gas inlet temperature is increased to 90 deg.
