Waaaaahhhh?

1. Why are you talking about radiators on a post about condensers.
2.This thing doesn't require all that much power, after all once it get's going it supports it's own weight so will be spinning like a regular fan surely. ( and thus use the same amount of energy as a fan spinning at the same speed, did you see how long this thing can coast for? so long as once upscaled they still support their own weight they would likely use the same amount of energy. Considering some air conditioning fans use silly amounts of amps already this shouldn't really be a problem,)
3. Yes I know this, I'm so confused man lol.


I'm not sure what any of that has to do with what I said.

Sandia have a condenser type design within their PDF ( it's basically two Sandia coolers and copper piping)
You posted a picture of a radiator, and called it a condenser. That's what I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around.

Sandia is saying condenser, but the more common word for this type of condenser is heatpipe. The heatpipes are what they are using, and that is effectively a closed loop condenser (one end), absorber (opposite end), and radiator (surface of heatpipe over condenser area.


Maybe I'm missing something? If so, can you tell me what it is, because I cannot see it...

It is a radiator, but it's a condenser as well. That one is actually from an AC.

Spending a lot of time on roof tops I see an awful lot of those things :laugh:



( the whole thing is a radiator/condenser, it will have a radial blower type fan that's about 3 foot tall in that)


I imagine what is happening here is that my poor English is making what I say sound like gibberish.

Sorry then, grammatical issues.

Condensor: a device that changes phases of a substance (condensor referring to condensing gas to a liquid)

Radiator: Passes fluid (liquids in cooling, though gasses are used in heating and chemical processing) through to exchange heat, but does not allow phase change.



Air conditioning uses both radiators and condensors, in a sealed and open loop combination. The condensor changes a gas into a liquid (freon or other coolant), then passes this liquid over a radiator. Phase changing as the liquid evaporates makes the radiator cold, so the gas inside the radiator (air) is chilled. The condensor loop passes the warm gas back to the condensor, to be turned back into a liquid. The open loop pumps chilled air into whatever is being cooled.

Again, engineering side. My bad.

correct. Its called a heat exchanger.

What happens in it is that the vaporised coolant gas which was vaporised upon exchanging heat with the inside of the room, now gets compressed by the compressor and also gains a bit of heat in the process because of the work done on it. so its passed through the radiator or heat exchanger.

the manufacturer

After reading an interesting article about the inventor of the first vga cooler, I'm placing a guess as to the future manufacturer of this new tech: Arctic Cooler :)

I hope not there coolers are expensive enough as they are lol.
