What is the Heat Killer A.K.A Condenser?
The condenser is a heat exchanger mounted at the front of the vehicle. Heat drawn out of the interior of the car is expelled here. It removes heat. The condenser is like a radiator. It takes the high-pressure gaseous refrigerant supplied by the compressor, and allows it to cool into a high-pressure liquid, dumping the heat to the ambient outside air when it does so.
R134a entering the condenser will be a high-pressure high temperature vapor. As the R134a vapor travels through the tubes of the condenser heat is given off to the cooler ambient air; the refrigerant vapor condenses and changes to a liquid state. At this point a large amount of heat is given off by the R134a. The refrigerant will now be a hot, high pressure liquid.
High-Performance Aluminum Condensers
Restomod Air has High-Performance Aluminum Condensers. The new all aluminum parallel flow allows up to 40% more heat reduction capacity along with a dramatic difference in refrigerant flow and pressure drop compared to the obsolete standard tube and fin condenser. Meaning we have the best Heat Killer for your ride. Take a look and check out what we have for you and if at anytime you need answers call us.
How does Restomod Air A/C work in your ride?
Here is some bonus information for you. A brief overview the Restomod Air a/c system in your ride is comprised of a compressor, condenser, expansion valve, receiver/drier, and evaporator. Refrigerant (also known as Freon) is compressed in the compressor. In the condenser, gas is cooled to a liquid state and travels to the expansion valve. As the liquid refrigerant goes through the expansion valve it rapidly cools in the evaporator. A fan blows over the evaporator and cools the air that blows out your vents.
Remember if you have any questions call our techs. Restomod Air can help you through the whole install process.
