Refrigeration Training System

The Refrigeration Training System is a compact training system designed to teach the fundamentals of refrigeration. It demonstrates the operation of typical refrigeration systems using industrial and commercial devices.

The compactness of the training system allows its placement on a table or a bench, reducing the floor space requirements. Featuring the latest versions of refrigerant and components available on the market, the training system ensures up-to-date training. It also integrates instrumentation and process control components, as well as an electrical control panel. Instructors can insert faults to teach troubleshooting.

The training system features a powerful data acquisition system whose tools enable students to easily monitor operating conditions in real-time to provide key information, simplifying system troubleshooting and performance analysis.
