This is for home AC, but the principle is the same.

"The machine has three main parts. They are a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator. The compressor and condenser are usually located on the outside air portion of the air conditioner. The evaporator is located on the inside the house, sometimes as part of a furnace. That's the part that heats your house."

Basically, the condenser takes the gas vapors and turns them into a cool liquid, the liquid then passes through the evaporator which turns it back into a gas, and that is what passes out the vents.
