The Hilton range of vocational refrigeration and air conditioning equipment is specifically designed for the practical training of installation and service engineers. Though standard and recognisable refrigeration components are used, the units are designed to provide students with experience that is not available using modified commercial equipment. The units are designed for safe operation by students of all abilities.
This unit quickly enables the student engineer to learn how the basic principles of the Vapour-Compression Cycle, are applied in practical refrigeration, and provides valuable ‘Hands-On’ experience in: Fault diagnosis and correction; Refrigerant recovery and recycling; Changing components; Evacuation and Charging and Electrical work
The unit is also available in kit form as the model 803 for student assembly practice.
The 803 is a complete package, in kit form, containing all the individual components needed to assemble and operate the unit 802 Commercial Refrigeration Training Unit.
This kit of parts, supported by a detailed instruction manual, will help the student to develop and practice the skills and techniques necessary to enable a successful commercial installation. The 803 will give the student experience and practice in: Correct location of components; Cutting, flaring, bending and brazing of copper pipe; Electrical wiring; Evacuation, charging and leak testing; Operation, temperature control and switch adjustment.
A dedicated hermetic refrigeration trainer with a capillary flow control and a range of switch activated faults for student practice. Using the push button switches, five system faults can be introduced into the system: Excess discharge pressure; Faulty compressor valve; Choked capillary; Overcharged system; Undercharged system. Students can then practice fault location.
A fully operational small scale commercial cold room, with a range of push button actuated built in faults. The unit allows comparison of internal and externally equalised thermostatic expansion valves in a realistic environment. A range of heat loads, allow the cold room to operate under realistic conditions
A small scale forced draught evaporator demonstrating both air conditioning and refrigeration principles, where reverse cycle operation is utilised for evaporator defrost. An air cooled condensing unit is fitted with a water cooled condenser and condenser pressure control for comparison purposes.
A finned static evaporator is also provided that may be brought into the circuit and operated at a different temperature to the main fan operated evaporator by means of an evaporator pressure regulator
