Auto Air Conditioner Evaporator
Evaporator Like the condenser, the evaporator is also a heat exchanger consisting of tubes and fins. However, that’s where the similarity ends. Unlike a condenser, which is designed to release large quantities of heat, an evaporator is used to absorb large quantities of heat. An evaporator is also much smaller than a condenser and is part of the system’s low side. Evaporators are located in the air handling case along with the blower.
Its primary duty is to remove heat from the inside of your vehicle. A secondary benefit is dehumidification. As warmer air travels through the aluminium fins of the cooler evaporator coil, the moisture contained in the air condenses on its surface. Dust and pollen passing through stick to its wet surfaces and drain off to the outside. On humid days you may have seen this as water dripping from the bottom of your vehicle. Rest assured this is perfectly normal. The ideal temperature of the evaporator is 0° Celsius. Refrigerant enters the bottom of the evaporator as a low pressure liquid. The warm air passing through the evaporator fins causes the refrigerant to boil (refrigerants have very low boiling points). As the refrigerant begins to boil, it can absorb large amounts of heat. This heat is then carried off with the refrigerant to the outside of the vehicle.
Keepin Cool can supply a range of Evaporators to suit both new and old vehicles.
