Refrigerant is pumped out of the compressor as a high pressure vapor, and it goes into the condenser inlet as such. The condenser acts as a heat exchanger, transferring heat from the refrigerant to the air which passes over the condenser fins. While in the condenser, the refrigerant will change state from a high pressure vapor to a high pressure liquid, then it moves on to the receiver-drier (on a thermal expansion valve system) or the orifice tube (on a fixed orifice tube system).
