ET 915.01 Refrigerator Model Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

ET 915.01 is part of the HSI training system for refrigeration and air conditioning technology. In combination with the base unit ET 915 the operational model of a domestic refrigerator is created. The model is plugged onto the base unit, secured using fasteners and connected with refrigerant hoses to become a complete refrigeration circuit.
  ET 915.01 consists of a refrigeration chamber with a heater as cooling load, evaporator, fan and various expansion elements. The fan supports the achievement of an even temperature distribution in the chamber. A cooling load can additionally be simulated with the heater. Solenoid valves enable the operation of the system with capillary tube or with expansion valve. All components are clearly arranged on a panel.
  The control of individual system components, here the temperature control, fan, heater, compressor and solenoid valves, takes place via the educational software included in the scope of delivery of the base unit ET 915. The software offers the option to simulate faults.
  Temperatures and pressures in the system are recorded by sensors and displayed dynamically in the educational software. The effect of parameter changes can be tracked online in the log p-h diagram.
