Free Color Brochure Details New Doucette High Tech Condenser
There continues to be a widespread growth of a new condenser design. This new condenser technology is presently being used in air conditioning and refrigeration in military ships, cargo ships, fishing fleets and offshore rigs, as well as smaller vessels.
According to Roger Lynch, sales manager for Doucette Industries, Inc., York, Pa., "This condenser is called a compact CounterFlow condenser. With this type of design, the condenser is smaller and costs 30-60 percent less than conventional shell and tube designs." The condenser is designed to be rugged and reliable, in addition to being mechanically cleanable for longer life.
Further, says Mr. Lynch, "The CounterFlow design replaces the conventional shell and tube designs, especially in the 1 to 40 horsepower applications. With 14 years of proven field experience, the use of this condenser is growing because of its compact size, reliability and lower cost.
The Doucette condenser is a high efficiency heat exchanger based on two principles—CounterFlow design and high performance tubes.
Doucette claims the condenser uses 60 percent less material than a typical shell and tube type unit. The iunit uses TurboFlow tubes for high performance and reduced fouling.
The condenser has a built-in "failsafe" feature with no internal joints that protect the refrigeration circuit and compressor.
