condenser

 [kon-den´ser]
1. a vessel or apparatus for condensing gases or vapors.
2. a device for illuminating microscopic objects.
4. a dental tool used to pack filling material in a cavity.

con·dens·er

(kon-den'ser),
1. An apparatus for cooling a gas to a liquid, or a liquid to a solid.
2. dentistry a manual or powered instrument used for packing a plastic or unset material into a cavity of a tooth; variation in sizes and shapes allows conformation of the mass to the cavity outline.
3. The simple or compound lens on a microscope that is used to supply the illumination necessary for visibility of the specimen under observation.
4. Synonym(s): capacitor

con·dens·er

(kŏn-den'sĕr)
1. An apparatus for cooling a gas to a liquid or a liquid to a solid.
2. dentistry A manual or powered instrument used for packing a plastic or unset material into a prepared tooth cavity; variation in size and shape permit conformation of the mass to the cavity outline.
3. The simple or compound lens on a microscope that is used to supply sufficient illumination necessary to view the specimen under observation.
4. Synonym(s): capacitor.

condenser

1. A device in which gas is cooled to a liquid.
2. An optical device that concentrates light on an object to be examined by microscopy.
3. A dental instrument for compressing filling material into a prepared tooth cavity.

condenser 

An optical system with a large aperture and small focal length used in microscopes and projectors in order to concentrate as much light as possible onto an object. Syn. condensing lens.

con·dens·er

(kŏn-den'sĕr)
In dentistry, a manual or powered instrument used for packing a plastic or unset material into a cavity of a tooth; variation in sizes and shapes allows conformation of the mass to the cavity outline.

Evaporative condensers are often used in cold storage warehouses, food processing facilities, supermarkets, industrial processes, and, to a limited extent, HVAC systems.
Household refrigerators are cyclic operating systems which effectiveness is being strongly affected by the heat exchange parts like evaporator and condenser. Condenser is one of the parts of a freezing system--it dissipates the heat into surroundings.
The original air conditioning test rig had air cooled condenser. In order to increase the refrigeration effect, it is converted into evaporative condenser by circulating water along with air being blown by fan.
Current testing under the 1998 standard lays out the steps for a full-acceptance test, which involves carefully calibrated test instrumentation and repeated testing to verify the performance characteristics of a condenser. The condenser, a heat exchanger often the size of a small church, contains an enormous network of tubes not visible to the eye.
How it works: Installs as an add-on controller for single or multiple fan air-cooled and evaporative condensers that are controlled by pressure switches and have a fixed or multiple fixed discharge pressure setpoint(s).
Heatcraft Refrigeration Products LLC (HRP) has announced the introduction of Tri-Pak, a multiple compressor condensing unit in a single cabinet that can accommodate up to three compressor modules and additional condenser surface for remote condenser circuits, to its line of refrigeration products.
