Valeo Condensers  Air Conditioning for LCV

Condenser

Condenser in a heat exchanger role

A condenser is a heat exchanger in the air conditioning loop located mainly at the front of the vehicle. The condenser cools the refrigerant that has been heated by the compressor, transferring this heat to the ambient air passing through it.The condenser converts the coolant from the gaseous state to the liquid state. The receiver drier can also be directly integrated to preserve the overall structure and decrease the level of vibration.

 

Valeo original equipment expertise

Valeo’s Original Equipment (O.E.) expertise is present in its vast range of condensers for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles proposed in Aftermarket.

The benefits of Valeo’s O.E. expertise include:

  • Optimized condenser design - tailored to vehicle requirements and space allowance.
  • Well-designed micro-port condenser tubes - to provide efficient heat transfer performance.
  • Enhanced corrosion resistance - SWAAT* tested under tough climate conditions, to suit high humidity areas. The entire Valeo condenser range is aluminium brazed.
  • Quality: leakage, durability and vibration tested - for noise reduction and optimized passenger comfort.

Technology / Innovation

Did you know ?

 Did you know that Valeo is a pioneer of the water cooling architecture using liquid instead of air.

For it’s solution Valeo was awarded a winner of 2016 PACE Award.

 

Condenser

Water-cooled condenser

Uses liquid instead of air which comparing to standard system enables:

  • reduction of the electrical consumption of the fan and
  • pressures variations of A/C loop

 

As an output it decreases fuel consumption and consequently CO2 emissions. 

Ultra compact, it does not need to be located in front of the radiator allowing free space for additional components. 

You may find the water condenser for example at BMW 3-series (2015). 

TechCorner

The most common problems with condensers are:

  • perforation due to impacts or corrosion 
  • fins clogged or damaged by insects, soiling or high-pressure cleaners 
  • leaks from the inlet and outlet couplings
  • insufficient performance caused by adaptable product

 

Valeo Tip

The condenser must be replaced following a crash, breakdown or leak. The lines should be plugged or capped immediately after disconnection to avoid moisture and dust contamination.

Valeo also recommends replacing the receiver drier cylinder, the joints, changing the oil (including rinsing the circuit using a flushing kit), and injecting a tracer for leak detection.
