Condensers

 

What does a condenser do?

The condenser is the radiator-like device mounted in the front of the radiator in the engine compartment. It receives hot gas refrigerant from the Compressor, dissipates heat and thereby condenses the gas refrigerant to mostly liquid and sends through the Filter-Drier and high-pressure liquid hose to the expansion valve. The condenser, along with the Evaporator, is the most important part in the a/c system at determining how cold vent temperature is.

If we don’t have yours, call or email. If we can’t provide a replacement, we can either duplicate your original or offer a custom alternative!

Why restore your condenser?

Over time, many things can decrease the efficiency of your car’s condenser and most of the system function and efficiency depends on its proper function.

Typical indications of a problem with the condenser include leaking, high system head pressure readings and engine overheating.

These symptoms can be as a result of contamination (the condenser, along with the filter-drier, is one of the highest contaminant collectors in the system), corrosion, blocked passages, damaged cooling fins or it can simply develop a leak.

Classic Auto Air offers new replacement condensers for many applications, and restoration & duplicating services for situations when a new replacement is not available.

  • Straighten fins
  • Repaint

So, if your original has seen better days or you’re converting to 134a refrigerant, either let us sell you a new one or restore your old one. More on Converting to 134a! Remember, condenser performance is the most important factor in obtaining proper system pressures, cold temperatures and excellent compressor reliability.
