Gas Cooler CO2 120 bar
The design of the “Gas Cooler” is complex and different from the design of a traditional condenser. The maximum operating pressure is 120 bar and the maximum operating temperature is 150 ° C.
Due to the high average temperature during the CO2 cooling process, the air reaches much higher temperatures than in the traditional condenser, the advantages are the reduction of the face area of the exchanger
Adiabatic panels allow the pre-cooling of the external air, reducing the COP of the installation, this is essential in the transcritical CO2 regime. The use of the panels allows the heat exchanger to remain dry, suitable for high temperatures of CO2 gas. Tap water is applied to the panels and the excess is drained, there is no recirculation or vapors or aerosols, meeting hygiene requirements.
