Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I hope I get some good response here.

For a seawater cooled condenser, will there be a cooling tower? Or will it be an open loop of seawater that cools the refrigerant?

It will be an open loop of seawater.

If you would use a cooling tower in a closed loop with the condenser then the condenser could work with fresh water.

I've been using Titanium heatexchangers tube in tube since 1989, that is a plastic barrel with Titanium tubes. Put in a waterflow switch to turn off the thermostat power supply if no water. Put in HP/LP gauges to ensure the correct waterflow. Do not use a Titanium plate heatexchanger unless you can filter water down to 250 micron before the Heatexchanger/condensor.

Is it for land based application or for marine vessel?

Its land based. I'll share more details later..
