07-3274 Geothermal Training System


The new Geothermal Training systems from Progressive Educational Systems provides a safe learning environment for students to learn multiple disciplines required to understand the operation of a Geothermal Heat Pump.

The 07-3274 Geothermal Training System is designed to teach the fundamentals of heat transfer, refrigeration, and air conditioning applied to geothermal energy HVAC projects. The operation of the training systems faithfully reproduces that of a typical geothermal residential system.

The 07-3274 Geothermal Trainer includes a mobile platform, housing two energy storage (water) tanks with 3 speed circulating pumps to vary and measure water flow rates. Two Co-axial refrigerant heat exchangers with metering devices and a refrigerant reversing valve, direct the compressor's electrical mechanical energy to sensible and latent heat energy, through visible and tactile heat transfer and phase change.

Temperature, pressure and electrical monitoring equipment are provided to calculate what the student is observing, and complete the learning experience. Electrical, water and refrigerant circuits are color coded for intuitive instruction. Certified by the Ontario Electrical Safety Authority with ground fault safety circuitry. Utilizes ozone safe, environmentally friendly refrigerant. Water, drain and a 120 VAC grounded receptacle is all that is required to teach today's conventional heat pump technology.

The curriculum provided with the 07-3274 Geo Thermal Training System was developed in conjunction with our educational partner, Cambrian College of Applied arts and Technology.
