Refrigerant Charge Reduction Through the Application of a New Vehicular Condenser 890226

A brazed aluminum air conditioning condenser has been developed(1) which utilizes lesser amounts of refrigerants than conventional condensers while maintaining equal system performance. This paper summarizes vehicular wind tunnel and road tests that were conducted to confirm the condenser's performance in a variety of applications. The condenser's ability to perform at lower refrigerant charge levels will become important when government legislation imposes limits on the production of refrigerants such as R-12.
