The difference between radiator and condenser

The radiator is designed for the heat dissipation of the automobile engine. The hot water flowing inside is the circulating water from the automobile engine. The condenser is specially used for the cooling of automobile air conditioner in summer. The refrigerant of air conditioner is flowing inside.

The condenser is a part of the air conditioning system, and the radiator is the cooling part of the engine. Generally, they are installed together on the car and share the cooling fan. The radiator is used to heat the engine water temperature, and the condenser is used for cooling the air conditioning refrigerant.

Condenser is a part of refrigeration system, belonging to a kind of heat exchanger. It can change gas or steam into liquid, and transfer heat in the pipe to the air near the pipe in a fast way. The working process of the condenser is an exothermic process, so the condenser temperature is high.

Automobile radiator is an indispensable and important part in the cooling system of automobile water-cooled engine, which is developing in the direction of light, high efficiency and economy. Automobile radiator is composed of water inlet chamber, water outlet chamber and radiator core. The coolant flows in the radiator core and air flows outside the radiator. The hot coolant cools as it dissipates heat to the air, and the cold air heats up by absorbing the heat from the coolant. The biggest difference in appearance is that the radiator has a fan, while the condenser does not.

In addition, it can be distinguished by temperature:

(1) Under the working condition of refrigeration, the condenser with condensation is the condenser. The cold air is blown into the car through the fan and air duct to reduce the temperature. If you feel it, it should be cold. This is the condenser.

(2) The radiator has water tank radiator and air conditioner radiator. There is a fan on the side of the radiator, and the radiator temperature is very high. You can know it by touching or looking at it.
