A/C Condensers and Parts

After the A/C compressor pressurizes the hot gaseous refrigerant, it is transported through the Receiver dryer and then onto the condenser. The function of the condenser is to receive the refrigerant in a gaseous state, then condense it down into a liquid state. It does this based on the radiator-like construction of loops, cooling fins, and location. Most condensers are mounted in locations where oncoming air helps to aid in the process. Many times, electric fans are mounted on the condenser as well, to further aid in the cooling process.

Using an electric fan can be helpful to increase air flow through a cooler mounted in a poor air flow location. We have 3 sizes (5.5", 6.5" and 7.5" diameter) in pusher and puller models available. They can be easily mounted to Mocal and most other oil cooling devices. These electric

They can be easily mounted to Mocal and most other oil cooling devices. These electric fans are especially good for applications in very warm climates and heavy traffic commuting. Add a fan on the A/C condenser for better HVAC preformance too!

A/C Valves

After the hot refrigerant gas is condensed into liquid by the condenser, it gets sent to the expansion valve. The expansion valve is used to bleed off the pressure from the hot refrigerant liquid. When the pressure drops, the result is that the refrigerant cools to the point where it can now enter the evaporator and complete the process of getting cold air in your car on a hot day. If you have trouble keeping the A/C temperature cold, and there is plenty of refrigerant in the system, it may be possible that the expansion valve is damaged or faulty.
