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.
The 810 is designed to train student in the operation, fault finding, maintenance and repair of automotive air conditioning systems.
It comprises a complete automotive air conditioning system on a stainless steel frame suitable for bench mounting. The unit has four common faults that may be introduced for student training and operates on R134a refrigerant used in most current vehicle air conditioning systems. Connections are provided to allow the use of standard R134a manifold gauges for student practice.
The Advanced Training Unit for Fault Location 811 is a fully operational refrigeration unit with two visible evaporators simulating freezing and cooling rooms, operating from a single semi-hermetic condensing unit.
The Water Chiller Training Unit 812 is a fully operational, water chiller, which enables the student to adjust and investigate a typical water cooler operating under load, either with or without evaporator pressure regulation.
The cooling of pure water requires that the evaporator surface temperature does not fall below 0°C or the system will freeze and may result in damage. This unit allows students to safely explore the parameters affecting evaporating pressure without danger to the operator or equipment.
A refrigeration and Air Conditioning Control and Fault Simulator in a compact case. Both cooling and heating modes including reverse cycle operation can be studied. The unit incorporates a mimic diagram with cooling and heating sections and room temperature and humidity potentiometers that may be operated by students. The unit also contains a control board with programmable controller and normal Run/Fault switches and indicator lamps.
An electrically driven ammonia-water absorption refrigeration system with insulated chiller compartment. All major components of the refrigeration system: generator, absorber, condenser and reservoir are visible and an instrumentation and control console allows measurement and control of all relevant system parameters.
