The Heat Pump Training System provides the necessary hardware and manuals to develop a solid understanding of typical domestic heat pumps. It has clearly identified separate circuits connected through a 4-way reversing valve to demonstrate the cooling and heating modes of operation. Timed automatic defrost as well as backup electric heating are also covered. Students will use manual and programmable thermostats to implement different scenarios in a plenum chamber.
The trainer also includes indicator lights, test points, pressure gauges, and troubleshooting instrumentation.
