Heat Pump Trainer ET 102

Heat Pump Trainer

Type: ET 102
Name: Heat Pump Trainer
ET 102 - A product from the GUNT 2E range
Technical Description

  With the air-to-water heat pump ET 102 the ambient heat of the air is used to heat water.
  The heat pump circuit consists of a compressor, an evaporator with fan, a thermostatic expansion valve and a coaxial coil heat exchanger as condenser. All components are clearly arranged in the trainer.
  The compressed refrigerant steam condenses in the outer pipe of the condenser and thereby discharges heat to the water in the inner pipe. The liquid refrigerant evaporates at low pressure in the finned tube evaporator and thereby absorbs heat from the ambient air.
  The hot water circuit consists of a tank, a pump and the condenser as heater. For a continuous operation the generated heat is dissipated via an external cooling water connection. The cooling water flow rate is set via a valve and measured.
  All relevant measured values are recorded by sensors and displayed. The simultaneous transmission of the measurements to a data recording software enables analysis and the representation of the process in the log p-h diagram. The software also displays the key characteristics variables of the process, such as the compressor pressure ratio and the coefficient of performance.
