CA-MP
Multi-Pressure Shell
and Tube Horizontal
Stainless Steel
(Water/Fluid Side)
Condensers

CA-MP (Multi-Pressure) condensers utilize all stainless steel components on the waterside, making them especially suitable for pulp and paper mill applications. They are designed to work with standard and higher pressure refrigerants.

Standard Designs
CA-MP condensers are available in standard designs for water duty. The models feature high-efficiency tube surfaces, and they are available in 6 catalog models from 5 to 30 horsepower (HP). For glycol duty please consult ProSuite or contact the factory.

Tube Materials
CA condensers are manufactured with enhanced 3/4″ OD 316 stainless steel tubing. The tubes can be easily serviced with commonly available tube cleaning equipment.

Customization
As standard, these units offer a horizontal, cleanable tube design. Condensers can also be made with stainless steel shell construction for use in corrosive environments.

FEATURES

Shells
ASME specification carbon steel pipe. Shells are sandblasted and cleaned prior to assembly.

Tubes
Stainless steel high performance enhanced tubing.

Tube Sheets

ASME specification stainless steel tube sheets, precision machined for excellent sealing.

Tube Supports

Quality steel tube supports are manufactured to close tolerances to minimize the risk of vibration.

Heads
ASME specification precision machined stainless steel heads. Custom connection versions are available.

Connections
All water side connections are FNPT. All refrigerant side connections are IDS. Safety connections are FNPT. Custom nozzle type, size, orientation, and locations are available.

 

Finish
Exterior surfaces are cleaned and painted with high-quality black paint and primer.

Codes
The refrigerant side is constructed to the latest edition of the ASME Section VIII Div. 1 code standards and is stamped accordingly. Both sides are tested at 1.3 times the design pressure. Units are helium leak tested to find leaks as small as 1 x 10⁻⁵ mbar.l/s. Canadian registration numbers (CRN) are available upon request. For other code registrations please contact the factory.

Working Pressures:
600 psi. Shell Side (Refrigerant) @ 150°F
150 psi. Tube Side (Water/Fluid) @ 150°F

Operating Charge
Approximately 10% of the pump down capacity is required for proper operation.

Nominal Water Pressure Drop
Nominal pressure drop values are given at nominal water flow rates. To determine nominal flow rates in gallons per minute (gpm), multiply the nominal HP by 3.0. Water pressure drop values provided do not include any external fittings or valves.

Water Flow
Water velocities of 15 feet per second (ft/s) or higher risk premature impingement corrosion and tube failure. Operation below minimum flow rates may result in excessive fouling and poor heat transfer. All values in this catalog section are limited to flow velocities below fifteen feet per second.

Approved Refrigerants
R22, R134a, R404A, R407C/F, R410A, R507A, and HFO1234ze.

Non-Approved Refrigerants
Ammonia/R717

Other Refrigerants
All other refrigerants must be approved by Standard Refrigeration before use.
