Condensers with
Zinc Anodes

MSE-MP (Multi-Pressure) condensers offer all of the great features of an MSE unit with a wider range of refrigerant selection. All models utilize corrosion-resistant materials on the water side to ensure a greater operating life over epoxy coated steel versions. These condensers are designed to work with standard and higher pressure refrigerants.

Standard Designs                    
MSE-MP condensers are available in standard designs for salt and freshwater duty.  The models feature high-efficiency tube surfaces and they are available in 10 catalog models from 2 to 40 horsepower (HP).  All units feature dual refrigerant outlets for shipboard use.  For glycol duty please consult ProSuite or contact the factory.

Tube Materials
“MSE-MP marine condensers are manufactured with enhanced 3/4″ OD 90/10 cupronickel tubing to provide reliable performance and ease of service from commonly available tube cleaning devices.”

As standard, these units offer horizontal, cleanable tube design.  Custom vessels are available with special materials of construction as required by you or your client.

Water Flow
Velocities of 6.6 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 shown on the dimension tables are limited to flow velocities below ten feet per second.  Water flow rates for shallow water applications need to be below seven feet per second due to a higher risk of premature impingement corrosion or tube failure, units should not be used without upstream filtration to lower failure risks.

Alternative Options
For greater pump down capacity use a custom MST unit or use MSE-MP in conjunction with HR-MP or UR-MP receiver tank.
