Inside Pinguino

elements portable air conditioner Here is what a Pinguino portable air conditioner is made of:
  • Coolant: a special fluid that transfers heat from a liquid to a gaseous state
  • Heat exchanger: "a bottleneck" that allows the coolant to change state
  • Condenser: the hot part of the cooling circuit, through which heat is transferred to the air (hot air that comes out of the tube on the back of the machine)
  • Evaporator: the cold part of the cooling circuit, through which air is cooled and transferred to the room (cool and dehumidified air that comes out of the machine's front grille)
  • Compressor: the heart of the cooling circuit; it pushes gas around the machines pipes
  • Fan: it pushes air through the air conditioner
