Air Conditioning / Heat Pump Training | T7082

Air Conditioning / Heat Pump Operations Learning System: T7082

Amatrol’s Air Conditioning/Heat Pump Operations Learning System (T7082) features industry-standard heating and cooling components that form a working heat pump, air conditioning and refrigeration system. The system teaches important heating and cooling concepts, such as compressors, condensers, metering devices, evaporators, temperature and pressure control devices, and reversing valves.

Thermal systems play a key role in industrial, commercial, and residential applications to provide heating and cooling of spaces and processes. The air conditioning/heat pump training system is ideal for HVAC technicians and installers. The system consists of a mobile workstation, compressor, pressure control system, refrigeration circuit, instrumentation set, temperature control system, blower control system, and much more! These real-world components provide hands-on experience with operating, monitoring, and adjusting air conditioning/heat pump systems like users will encounter on the job.

Learning Topics

  • Refrigeration Systems
  • Temperature and Pressure Measurement
  • Enthalpy and Combined Gas Law
  • Compressor Operation
  • Phase Change Effects
  • Condenser Operation and Performance
  • Metering Devices and Evaporators
  • Automatic and Thermostatic Expansion Valves
  • Reversing Valves and Refrigerants
  • Humidity Analysis

Study Heating and Cooling Components and Practice on Real-World Equipment

The air conditioning/heat pump training system includes a variety of industry-standard components, such as flow meters, three types of control valves, pressure/temperature gauges, evaporators, reversing valves, heavy-duty industrial blowers, and a microprocessor-based temperature control system. Learners will use these components to practice hands-on, skill-building tasks, such as determining the amount of subcooling in a mechanical refrigeration system, setting the pressures on a dual-pressure control device, using a gauge manifold to measure thermal system pressure, and testing a thermostatic expansion valve or compressor. Users will also learn how to observe and monitor heating and cooling systems using various instruments, including sight glasses, moisture indicators, and a panel-mounted compressor ammeter.

Expand Your System To Teach Environmental Applications

The training system can be expanded to teach environmental heating and cooling applications by adding the optional Environmental Applications Learning System (T7083). The environmental applications training system models the unique characteristics of a living structure and replicates both outside environmental effects, such as sun or humidity, and internal design characteristics, such as insulation, lighting, and ceiling fans

Unmatched Heating/Cooling Content with Optional eBook Format

The T7082 includes world-class heating and cooling troubleshooting curriculum that covers major topics areas like heat transfer, dual-pressure devices, filter/dryers and moisture indicators, refrigerants, and an array of troubleshooting topics. Specifically, learners will study concepts including: how to calculate a conduction heat transfer rate; how mass flow rate is calculated; the function of a sight glass/moisture indicator; how to test an automatic expansion valve; and how to troubleshoot insufficient cooling. In addition to the included printed curriculum, Amatrol also offers this course in an online eBook format. Amatrol’s eBooks provide easy, quick navigation and searchable course content in an online, computer-based format.
