Details New Doucette

High Tech Condenser

There continues to be a wide- spread growth of a new condenser design. This new condenser technol- ogy is presently being used in air conditioning and refrigeration in military ships, cargo ships, fishing fleets and offshore rigs, as well as smaller vessels.

According to Roger Lynch, sales manager for Doucette Indus- tries, Inc., York, Pa., "This condens- er is called a compact CounterFlow condenser. With this type of design, the condenser is smaller and costs 30-60 percent less than conventional shell and tube designs." The con- denser is designed to be rugged and reliable, in addition to being me- chanically cleanable for longer life.

Further, says Mr. Lynch, "The

CounterFlow design replaces the conventional shell and tube designs, especially in the 1 to 40 horsepower applications. With 14 years of prov- en field experience, the use of this condenser is growing because of its compact size, reliability and lower cost.

The Doucette condenser is a high efficiency heat exchanger based on two principles—CounterFlow de- sign and high performance tubes.

Doucette claims the condenser uses 60 percent less material than a typi- cal shell and tube type unit. The iunit uses TurboFlow tubes for high performance and reduced fouling.

The condenser has a built-in "fail- safe" feature with no internal joints that protect the refrigeration circuit and compressor.

EC To Offer

New Ship Registry

In an effort to halt the decline of its shipping fleet, the European

Commission announced a proposal for an EC shipping register.

The new flag, to be called Euros, will offer cabotage rights and other advantages to European Communi- ty-based shipowners. The Euros flag will exist alongside established EC national flags.

According to Karel van Miert,

EC transport commissioner, Euros- flagged ships would have certain operating cost advantages which would make them more competitive in the world market.
