Course Description

This course covers the function, construction, operation of both air and water-cooled condensers along with related devices.  Furthermore it discusses cooling towers and spray ponds, including maintenance and troubleshooting.  It includes a section on evaporative condensers along with a discussion of water-related problems and how to solve them.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the construction of an air-cooled condenser
  • Understanding the effects of ambient temperature on the capacity of an air-cooled condenser.
  • Understanding the various types of low-ambient controls for air-cooled condensers.
  • Learning the List the periodic maintenance procedures common to most air-cooled condensers.
  • Learning the construction of the various kinds of water-cooled condensers.
  • Understanding the water-cooled condenser maintenance procedures
  • Learning the function of cooling towers and spray ponds and the factors that affect their capacities.
