Condensers with
Zinc Anodes

MSE condensers provide all of the benefits of standard MSE with the addition of a zinc anode for extra security. All models utilize corrosion-resistant materials on the waterside to ensure a greater operating life over epoxy coated steel versions.

Standard Designs
MSE condensers are available in standard designs for salt and freshwater duty. The models feature high-efficiency tube surfaces and they are available in 18 catalog models from 1 to 120 horsepower (HP). All units feature dual refrigerant outlets for shipboard use. For glycol duty please consult ProSuite or contact the factory.

Tube Materials
“MSE 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.”

Customization
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 higher pressure, refrigerants use MSE-MP units. For greater pump down capacity consult factory for MST unit selection.
