Engine Size: 350
Refrigerant Type: r12
I'm restoring an old suburban that has a r12 system. I will be replacing everything--evaporator, condenser, compressor, hoses, etc. and converting to r134a. I live in hot humid Florida and am concerned this will not do well and fail to provide good cooling.
Is adding a second condenser reasonable as everything I've read indicates that is a major problem even if I change to a parallel condenser? I can't really fit a larger condenser in the current position without cutting a lot of metal supports. There is lots of room in front and to the side of the current condenser.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I don't see why that wouldn't work - you would just have to route the exiting refrigerant from condenser #1 into the top of condenser #2. Would think that the second condenser would just be acting as a radiator to further cool the already condensed refrigerant ... or would fully condense any mixture of gas/liquid remaining. With the proper connections & a pair of electric fans for each, I don't see why that wouldn't work, and work very well.
I would add the largest Parallel flow condenser. You add to much (thick) condensers and you will block air flow.
Good point - I was picturing in my head hanging a second condenser off to one side.
