CRF (Condenser Refrigerant Fresh) water condensers offer a more compact heat exchanger with greater efficiency and a high level of durability. The CRF condenser has been developed for HFC/HFO cooling applications at medium and high pressure for refrigeration, process cooling, and air conditioning.
Available in standard designs for fluid duty, CRF condensers feature high-efficiency tube surfaces, and they are available in 34 catalog models from 4 to 610 horsepower (HP). They are optimized with a smaller footprint, which results in smaller space requirements and a lower refrigerant charge. For glycol duty, please consult ProSuite selection software or contact the factory.
CRF condensers are manufactured with high efficiency 3/4″ OD copper tubing to provide improved performance in a smaller unit. Heavy wall tube construction is available. The tubes can be easily serviced with commonly available tube cleaning equipment.
Configuration and Customization
CRF units offer a horizontal, cleanable tube design. The CRF range can be configured to match your or your client’s requirements. Standard Refrigeration now offers 3D SolidWorks drawings at the time of the quote. This will minimize the overall lead time and offer you or the end-user a quick, accurate, and effective design.
Dual Circuit units are available in the CRF design. For seawater use, consult factory for CRM Marine Condensers
Descriptive part number nomenclature for easy identification. As an example, a CRF120512KWH condenser part number is described below:
CRF – Condenser model
12 – Nominal shell diameter, in.
05 – Tube length, ft.
1 – Number of refrigerant shell side circuits
2 – Number of tube side passes
K – Tube count
(L = lower tube count, M=maximum number of tubes)
W – Refrigerant connection identifier
(call factory for details)
H – Water/fluid side connection identifier
(call factory for details)
Configurable, custom, and larger models are available, please contact your local sales representative
*Ratings are based on entering water 85°F, leaving water 95°F, and saturated condensing temperature of 105°F with 5°F of subcooling
**Pump down capacities are based upon 90% of the shell open volume. Multipliers for refrigerants other than R-22: R-134A= R-22 cap x 1.015; R-404A= R-22 cap x .89; R-410A=R-22 x 1.033
Nominal ratings include an additive fouling factor of 0.00025 ft2-hr-°F/ BTU as calculated per AHRI Standard 450.
