    Question Condenser principle question



    Hi Forum,

    I am looking to mod a vehicle and the question of A/c has come up - this question all about the science and principles of A/C

    situation:
    Long story short- have a vehicle and due to mods and oversized intercoolers and dual core radiators space is a premium. I could mount a condenser in front of the intercooler with a push fan but this would diminish the intercooler performance and the basis for investing in the first place.

    So hence the question - can two (2) condensers be employed (which would provide more real-estate flexibility), any red flags/ pro/cons?

    And if so...
    would i need to replicate the same surface area of the factory Condenser to get similar performance (can this also be a 'thicker' condensers)

    I had little luck locating a forum that was capable of answering un Automtovie

    Re: Condenser principle question

    Hello Itolond,
    I see that no-one has responded to your question.
    Working with refrigerants is licensed in most parts of the world so that emissions of Greenhouse gases to atmosphere can be controlled & limited.
    I know that things are different in Singapore & other parts of Asia.
    I expect that is why no-one has responded.
    Specifically to your question, with refrigerants it is not as simple as just fitting a couple of tees & sending refrigerant to two Condensers.
    It may technically be possible for your car, but economically I couldn't see that it would be worth paying someone to do it.
    I believe that some luxury cars & small buses may use two evaporators. but I don't think that I have heard of an automotive application which uses dual Condensers.

    Hi peter,

    thanks for the response - this will be -degassed by a reputable A/C crew if need be (meet enviro standards)

    this is a space restriction issue on a custom build. - i assume the two condensers can be placed in parallel or serial configuration
