The main components of condensing unit

open condensing unit

Condensing Unit (CDU) is a key component in a refrigeration or air conditioning system. It is responsible for releasing heat absorbed by the refrigerant during the cooling process. The primary function of the condensing unit is to facilitate the phase change of the refrigerant from a high-pressure gas to a high-pressure liquid.


Here are the main components and functions of a condensing unit:

Here are the main components and functions of a condensing unit:


1.    Compressor

The compressor is a vital part of the condensing unit. It pressurizes and pumps the refrigerant, raising its temperature and pressure.

2.    Condenser Coil

The high-pressure, high-temperature refrigerant gas flows to the condenser coil. In the condenser coil, the refrigerant releases heat to the surrounding air or another heat exchange medium, causing it to condense into a high-pressure liquid.


3.    Condenser Fan and Motor

A condenser fan is used to enhance the heat exchange process. It helps dissipate the heat absorbed by the refrigerant into the surrounding air. The condenser fan motor powers the condenser fan, providing the necessary airflow for effective heat dissipation.


4.    Refrigerant Lines

These are the pipes or tubes that connect the condenser coil to the evaporator coil. They allow the
