A/C System Trainer with Orifice Tube


Educational Advantages

  • Clear sight glasses at the orifice tube, condenser and evaporator allow demonstration and observation of the refrigerant change of state, which reinforces vapor/liquid physics..
  • Two rows of LED’s help in viewing refrigerant flow in condenser and evaporator.
  • High and Low side pressure gauges and OEM R134a service ports provide real-world diagnostic opportunities. A/C recycling/recovery machines and manifold gauges can be installed on the trainer.
  • Clear accumulator equipped with an internal light to show refrigerant operation and change of state, and desiccant operation.
  • Digital thermometers located at the inlet and outlet of both evaporator and condenser allow students to observe complete A/C system operation. (Thermometers can be controlled [on/off] by instructors).
  • In-line ball valves allow creation of system restrictions or blockages on high and low sides.
  • Multi-speed fans for evaporator and condenser can be used to demonstrate abnormal operating conditions.
  • Various A/C system symptoms can be created and demonstrated.
  • Cycling switch bypass to allow the evaporator to become cooler than normal.
  • Magnetic component identification labels and refrigerant flow direction arrows for student learning/testing objectives.
