Thermal Science Training | Refrigeration, Compressor, & Evaporator Skills

Product Number: T7081

Amatrol’s Thermal Science Learning System (T7081) provides the knowledge and equipment needed to comprehend the principles of modern thermal systems, such as HVAC, geothermal, refrigeration, and steam systems. As learners progress through the thermal science training curriculum, they will perform experiments demonstrating principles such as the ideal gas law, linear and volumetric thermal expansion, basic temperature measurement, latent and sensible heat, specific heat capacity, conduction, convention, radiation, evaporative cooling, and basic refrigeration.

This tabletop learning system showcases a full range of components, such as a fire syringe, a vacuum hand pump, bi-metallic ball and ring, and many more on a vertical panel for easy access and inventory. These components are used in various combinations to conduct experiments that show learners physical examples of thermal concepts and build foundational knowledge that they can use in real-world applications!

Hands-On Skills to Reinforce Theoretical Knowledge

The best way to engage learners and reinforce theoretical concepts is to apply the concept using hands-on skills. For example, using a vacuum pump supplied with the T7081, learners lower the pressure on a container of warm water until it boils, which demonstrates the relationship between pressure and a fluid’s boiling point. As learners study thermal expansion, a key concept in bimetallic thermostats, they will apply heat to a bimetallic strip and observe how different metals expand at different rates. These and many other experiments engage the learner and build a solid foundation for further study in the field of thermal systems.

World-Class Thermal Science Training Curriculum

Amatrol, working closely with industry professionals and educators, produced this world-class thermal science curriculum with stunning breadth and depth to give learners a comprehensive education in thermal concepts. Specific topic areas in this course include thermal energy and heat transfer, thermodynamic laws and properties, refrigeration thermodynamics, and refrigeration pump operation.

Amatrol’s peerless interactive multimedia curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, and interactive quizzes and reviews that engage learners in theoretical knowledge and concepts. This thorough, detailed curriculum begins with the basics and advances to complex concepts. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field.

Trainer Helps Build Real-World Thermal Skills

The Thermal Science Learning System is a fantastic lead-in to Amatrol’s Air Conditioning / Heat Pump Learning System (T7082), which covers refrigeration, compressors, phase change, evaporators, and much more! The T7082 is also available with FaultPro, the industry’s only electronic fault insertion software.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. The 850-HD1 curriculum teaches learners about basic hydraulic concepts, such as circuit connections, basic motor circuits, fluid friction, meter-in and meter-out circuits, pressure reducing valves, schematics, pressure and volume, and flow control valves.

The curriculum also features a virtual trainer option that allows learners to gain skills through realistic simulation before using the real equipment. The combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

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.
