The cATC line of evaporative condensers represents Evapco’s commitment to product development. The line is comprised of 24 models ranging in size from 128 to 357 nominal ammonia tons (551 kW to 1,538 kW). The induced draft counterflow condensers are designed especially for easy maintenance and long, trouble-free operation.
The cATC Evaporative Condenser is an Advanced Technology, induced draft counterflow design condenser featuring EVAPCO’s patented THERMAL-PAK ® COIL – the most efficient in the industry. The counterflow design provides the cATC Evaporative Condenser with inherently better operational and maintenance features.
The refrigerant is circulated through the coil of the evaporative condenser. Heat from the refrigerant is dissipated through the coil tubes to the water cascading downward over the tubes. Simultaneously, air is drawn in through the air inlet louvers at the base of the condenser and travels upward over the coil opposite the water flow. A small portion of the water is evaporated which removes the heat. The warm moist air is drawn to the top of the evaporative condenser by the fan and is discharged to the atmosphere. The remaining water falls to the sump at the bottom of the condenser where it is recirculated by the pump up through the water distribution system and back down over the coils.
