A MULTISTAGE GAS AND LIQUID PHASE SEPARATION TYPE CONDENSER
|Abstract||A multistage gaseous and liquid phase separation type condenser has a pair of headers disposed in parallel with each other, and a plurality of flat tubes each connected to the headers at opposite ends thereof and corrugated fins interposed between adjacent flat tubes. Each header is divided by baffles into four chambers. The second header has a receiver and chambers of the second header have communication passageways for placing the chambers of the second header in flow communication with the receiver. The first header has an inlet pipe connected to a middle chamber thereof so as to form an inlet path and an outlet pipe connected to a lower chamber thereof. While the refrigerant flows through the paths defined by a plurality of flat tubes, a first separation of gaseous and liquid phases of the refrigerant occurs within the second header so that the separated gaseous refrigerant is recondensed flowing through an upper path above the inlet path and introduced into the receiver via the communication passageway, whereas the separated liquid refrigerant is introduced into the receiver. A second separation of gaseous and liquid phases of the refrigerant occurs within the receiver in connection with a certain amount of the liquid refrigerant stored in the receiver. The liquid refrigerant in the receiver is communicated with the lower path via a lower communication passageway formed in the lower chamber of the second header.|
This invention relates to a heat exchanger, and more particularly to a multi separation type condender of the gaseous and liquid phases of the refrigerant.
Both the first and second header 13 and 14 are porvided with battles to define a plurality of paths each defined by a plurality of flat tubes 11. Fig. 1 shows four paths formed and the number of paths varies with increase or decrease of the baffles. In the multiflow type condenser, the refrigerant flows in zigzag fashion between the inlet pipe 13 and the outlet pipe 16..
The refrigerant introduced into the condenser 10 provided with the
11 is another object of the present invention to provide a multistage gas and liquid phase separation type condenser in which by providing one of a pair of headers with a receiver and the other with a
refrigerant of the refrigerant passed through said first path to flow therethrough ;

The outlet path P4 toward the outlet pipe 66 and to prevent the refrigerant of
the oulet path P4 from being swept along with the liquid refrigrant exiling through the outlet pipe 6(5. Further the second header may have a desicent/filter disposed in the lower chamber 60 thereof so as to prevent the gaseous refrigerant from exiling the condenser 30 through the outlet pipe 66.
FIG. 13 is an entire cross-sectional view showing a desiccant installed in the condenser, wherein this embodiment is based on the embodiment depicted in FIG. 6 except the bypass conduit. Preferably, the desiecant 86 is arranged to cover an inlet port of an outlet pipe 66. Otherwise, the desiccant 86 may be disposed in the lower chamber 60 of the second header 34. Such filtering means removes impurities such as water, dust and gaseous refrigerant contained in the refrigerant, except the liquid refrigerant.
