ET 910 Refrigeration Training System, Base Unit Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  With this training system practical experiments relating to the operation of a refrigeration system can be implemented by dealing with differently configured compression refrigeration circuits. The components used are common in refrigeration and therefore closely related to practice.
  The base unit ET 910 includes the main components of a refrigeration circuit: a condensing unit with compressor, condenser and receiver and a refrigeration chamber with integrated evaporator, fan for forced ventilation and an electric defrost heater. A pressure switch protects the compressor against excessive pressure. The refrigerant flow can be modified via shut-off valves.
  Together with the components from ET 910.10, e.g. heat exchanger, flow meter or manometer, simple refrigeration circuits are realised. For continued experiments additional refrigeration components from ET 910.11 are used, e.g. post-injection valve, capacity controller or defrost timer. All components of the training system have ball valves at the connections. Using the required accessory kit ET 910.12 the components are connected into a complete refrigeration system. For the complete experimental set-up, ET 910.05, laboratory workplace with frame for mounting the components and power supply, is required. The CFC-free refrigerant R134a serves as working medium.
  With the service set ET 910.13 additional exercises for the filling and evacuation of refrigeration systems are carried out.
  The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.
