Vertical Shell
and Coil Condenser

VSC condensers utilize a sealed vertical shell and coil design, perfect for a small footprint location.

Standard Designs
VSC condensers are available in standard designs for water duty. The models feature high-efficiency tube surfaces and they are available in 5 catalog models from 3 to 15 horsepower (HP). They are optimized with a smaller footprint, which results in less space requirement and refrigerant charge. For glycol duty please contact the factory.

Tube Materials
VSC condensers are manufactured with enhanced 3/4″ diameter copper tubing.

Configuration and Customization
Custom vessels are available with special materials of construction as required by you or your client, please consult the factory for options.

Maximum Allowable Working Pressures:
– 400 psi. Shell Side (Refrigerant) @ 150°F
– 150 psi. Tube Side (Water/Fluid) @ 150°F

Operating Charge
Approximately 10% of the pumpdown capacity is required in the unit for proper operation.

Nominal Water Pressure Drop
Nominal pressure drops 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 drops provided do not include any external fittings or valves.

Water Flow
Water velocities of eight 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 eight feet per second.

Approved Refrigerants
R22, R134a, R290, R404A, R407C, R448A, R449A, R507A, R513A.

Non-Approved Refrigerants Unless Cleared by the Factory
Ammonia/R717, due to copper tubing. R410A-consult factory. Custom units are available for these refrigerants.

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

Alternative Options
or higher pressure refrigerants use HSE-MP units. For greater pump-down capacity use SST units. For saltwater applications use MSE or MST units. For clean water applications use a brazed CND-CB or for higher pressure refrigerants use a CND-ACH.
