A thorough understanding of the basic modes of Heat Transfer is a fundamental requirement for most courses in Science and Engineering. The P.A.Hilton Ltd Heat Transfer range is designed to teach all the fundamental principles of Heat Transfer and Thermodynamics as well as units for more advanced studies.
Many of the ranges have a common instrumentation and service unit with a series of optional add-on modules available, designed for specific applications. This modular approach gives maximum flexibility to educational establishments to align their laboratory equipment to curriculum requirements and budgets.
Data Acquisition Upgrades are available for the vast majority of units within the Heat Transfer range, allowing the key experimental parameters to be captured using the Universal Data Acquisition software.
A bench top accessory designed to allow students to experimentally investigate both free (natural) convection and forced convection. The accessory includes a small, variable velocity wind tunnel with a digital velocity meter and a central aperture.
One of a range of optional modules that is designed to be operated in conjunction with the H112 Heat Transfer Service unit . The device has no moving parts and uses direct electrical current to move heat from one face of the device to the other. Used extensively for cooling in electronics applications the unit gives a wide range of experimental investigation possibilities.
A bench top accessory designed to allow students to experimentally investigate one of the methods available to convert heat energy directly into work. The engine consists of a water cooled power cylinder and a transfer cylinder connected via a common duct. A single acting power piston and double acting displacer piston are connected to a flywheel
A bench top accessory designed to allow students to experimentally investigate convective, nucleate and film boiling. The unit consists of a high strength clear glass cylinder with instrumented electric heater element immersed in a volatile solvent that boils at low pressure.
Cross Flow Heat Exchangers are one of the most common types of heat exchanger used in countless applications such as engine radiators, air heaters, refrigeration evaporators and condensers, super-heaters and economisers.
The unit H352 is designed to enable students to investigate steady state rates of free and forced convective heat transfer at various air velocities and is supplied complete with a separate instrumentation console and a variable speed fan as standard.
