Compensator
A compensator can be built-into a heating system to absorb pipe linear expansion as an alternative to an expansion loop.
Compressor
A compressor is the heart of a cooling system. It increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume.
Condensate pump
A condensate pump is used to pump condensed water in cooling systems.
Condenser
A condenser is used in a cooling system. A condenser removes heat from cooling medium that flows through it. The cooling medium can be one of several coolants.
Condensing boiler
A condensing boiler is provided with a condenser, by which the water vapour produced by the burning of gas or oil in the boiler, condenses back into liquid water - hence the name condensing boiler. The energy contained in the vapour, would without a condenser, normally discharged to the atmosphere through the flue.
Condensing temperature
The condensing temperature is the temperature at which a cooling medium changes phases from a gas to a liquid.
Conductivity transmitter
Conductivity transmitters measure the electrical conductivity in a liquid. This is done in order to avoid excessive salinity, which can cause corrosion in e.g. air-conditioning systems.
Constant curve, control mode
When there is a demand for constant flow and con­stant head, a speed controlled pump can replace a throttle valve for adjusting the flow.
Constant differential pressure, control mode
Constant differential pressure can be used in circulating systems with a pipe system with low pressure loss and with control valves to generate a variable flow.
Constant flow, control mode
Constant flow is used in systems where there is a demand for a constant flow independent of the pressure loss.
