Related Terms

SEA CHEST

An opening for supplying seawater to condensers, pumps, etc. located in the hull below the waterline and having means for the attachment of the associated piping

CONDENSER

A device that can store an electric charge when voltage is applied.

LIQUID RECEIVER

Cylinder (container) connected to condenser outlet for storage of liquid refrigerant in a system.

AIR EJECTOR

An air ejector is a steam siphon that removes non-condensable gases from the condenser.

WATER COOLED CONDENSER

A condenser cooled by the increase of sensible heat of the water circulated through it.

LIQUID LINE

Tube which carries liquid refrigerant from the condenser or liquid receiver to the refrigerant control mechanism.

CONDENSATION

The change of state from vapor/gas into a liquid, reverse to evaporation. If a vapor becomes supersaturated, condensation takes place and heat is surrendered. For example, in a seawater cooled condenser, a compressor has raised the pressure of the vapor to such an extent that at seawater temperature, it is supersaturated. Condensation takes place, and the latent heat released heats up the water passing through the condenser tubes; the heated seawater passing overboard into the sea, to be replaced continuously by fresh cool water. The resulting condensate will be somewhat warmer than the seawater coolant.

CASCADE RELIQUEFACTION CYCLE

A process in which vapour boil-off from cargo tanks is condensed in a cargo condenser in which the coolant is a refrigerant gas such as R22 or equivalent. The refrigerant gas is then compressed and passed through a conventional sea water-cooled condenser.

GAS CONDENSATE

Reliquefied gases which collect in the condenser and which are then returned to the cargo tanks.

PACKAGE UNIT

Complete refrigerating system including compressor, condenser and evaporator located in the refrigerated space.
