Basic Refrigeration Training System | Hands-On HVACR Skills for Technicians

Learning System: T7045

Amatrol’s Basic Refrigeration Learning System (T7045) offers hands-on learning of a working refrigeration system in a compact tabletop unit. Skills delivered through this trainer are used by technicians in industrial, residential, and commercial HVACR settings, preparing learners for a continuously growing industry. This system is a fantastic starting point for future HVACR technicians as it covers both hands-on maintenance skills and technical refrigeration concepts and calculations.

The T7045 covers topics including temperature and pressure measurement, heat transfer, & phase change. Transparent sections in the refrigerant lines allow students to observe the refrigerant as it changes from gas to liquid as it travels through various components. Temperature and pressure gauges are installed in multiple locations providing students a better understanding of how the refrigeration cycle works. Industry-standard components ensure learners gain experience with operating, monitoring, and adjusting refrigeration cycles on systems that they’ll see in the field.

Learning Topics

  • Temperature and Pressure Measurement
  • Refrigeration Energy
  • Compressors
  • Heat Transfer
  • Phase Change Effects
  • Condensers and Evaporators
  • Metering Devices
  • Temperature and Pressure Control Devices
  • Auxiliary Refrigeration Components
  • Refrigeration System Performance

Study Refrigeration while Learning on Industry-Standard Equipment

Amatrol’s T7045 features equipment your learners will encounter in their careers, including R134a refrigerant, evaporator and condenser coils, variable speed fan controls, a hermetic compressor, pressure and temperature gauges, a dual high-pressure cutout switch, and much more. From these real-world components, learners will practice hands-on, skill-building tasks, such as measuring condenser inlet and outlet temperature and pressure; setting the pressures on a dual-pressure control device; calculating a change in enthalpy due to temperature changes; and operating a thermal system using forced and free convection heat transfer.

Interactive Basic Refrigeration eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's basic refrigeration training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific basic refrigeration topics covered include: the operation of bimetallic thermometers, thermistors, and thermocouples; the significance of the combined gas law; the operation of rotary vane, scroll, reciprocating piston, and hermetic compressors; how to set a thermostatic expansion valve using the superheat method; how to calculate heat duty of a heat exchanger; and more.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
