The FRICK® Vertical Intercooler (VI) desuperheats booster compressor discharge gas prior to entering the high stage compressors. At times the intercooler may also serve as a suction accumulator for high temperature loads
Features and Benefits
The FRICK® intercooler is designed and rated for the specified refrigerant and operating conditions.
All nozzle connections are sized according to industry standard criteria based on the refrigerant and specified operating conditions.
FRICK® Coolware software allows custom rating of the intercooler with various refrigerants, nozzle sizing based on maximum vessel capacity or specific capacity and modification of the nozzle locations (based on limitations).
The intercooler vessel and components are abrasively cleaned prior to assembly assuring a clean interior and maximum adhesion of the final exterior paint system.
The finished vessel is pressure tested to assure the integrity of all welds. It is vacuum dehydrated and finally charged with a 15 psi nitrogen charge for shipment and storage.
An internal pipe coil may be supplied for subcooling high pressure liquid refrigerant.
