PHC-E Installation

The Parallel Hybrid Condenser, PHC-E line of condensers has always reflected EVAPCO’s commitment to product development. Its advanced design and owner-oriented features provide many operational and performance advantages.

EVAPCO's latest high efficiency heat transfer coil technology is utilized featuring CrossCool™ Internal Tube Enhancement which increases the internal heat transfer coefficient of the coil and thus increases the cooling capacity of the unit.

  • Great for large industrial refrigeration projects
  • The PHC-E offers great flexibility of layout and system design for a variety of situations
  • Ranging in capacity from 84 to 2,120 nominal tons
  • IBC Compliant – Independently certified by the International Building Code to withstand seismic and wind load forces in North America

PHC_PofO

Hot gas discharged from the compressor enters the condenser coil inlets at the top of the unit. Cooled water from the unit basin is pumped through spray distribution nozzles and floods over the condenser coils. Ambient air is simultaneously drawn into the unit at the top in parallel flow with the water through the coil. A portion of the recirculated water evaporates into the air stream, removing heat from the refrigerant and causing it to condense.

The cooled refrigerant liquid drains out of the sloped coil tubes into a pressurized receiver for return to the system. The recirculated water that did not evaporate falls through a crossflow fill section located below the coil. Air is drawn through the side of the unit and fill section, removing additional heat from the water through further evaporation. The cooled water collects in the basin for recirculation over the coil.

The hot, saturated air from both the coil and fill sections passes through internal drift eliminators to strip water droplets entrained in the air stream, reducing water consumption. The unit fan(s) then discharge the saturated air out of the top of the unit at a high velocity, where it dissipates into the atmosphere.
