Give future refrigeration technicians a challenging project to sharpen their practical skills
Festo designed a workstation for the 2017 Refrigeration WorldSkills competition. Contestants carried out a challenging project, while putting the workstation to the test. This workstation is now available to schools training skilled refrigeration technicians. This capstone project allows future refrigeration workers to practice a variety of skills necessary to fabricate, install, and commission a challenging refrigeration circuit. The project is aimed at producing ice while recovering the extracted energy to heat a water tank at a specified temperature, and then rejecting additional heat into the atmosphere through an air-cooled condenser.
