Spray and Surface Condensers

Spray and Surface Condensers

EQUIREPSA designs and manufactures condensers, not only as a part of our own vacuum systems, also for a variety of industrial applications.

The main types of condenser manufactured by EQUIREPSA are the following:

Mixing or direct contact Condenser

These are equipment that condense vapours by direct contact producing an efficient condensation of steam and cooling of non-condensable gases.  These are equipped by one or more spray nozzles, to create a large interfacial area in order to improve contact and heat transfer.

These type of condenser are suitable when the mixing between the process fluid and the cooling fluid is possible.

Spray Condenser

Surface condenser

These are equipment that condense vapors without contact between the fluids. The heat exchange is produced through a tubes bundle without any contact between both fluids.

These condensers allow efficient cooling and condensation preventing from contamination of the fluids flowing through them. In addition, there are a variety of possible configurations which gives them great versatility.

Surface Condenser

In general, when condensers are working under vacuum conditions, whatever type they are, a barometric column is required for condensates outlet, or in case not possible, a tank with a pump and a level control, as well as a pump or ejector for evacuation of non-condensable gases.

Applications:

  • Steam condensation in evaporators, etc.
  • Intercondensers in multi-stage vacuum groups.
  • Vapour condensation and vacuum generation in strainers, dryers…
