The Forced Air Gas Burner Trainer, "GBT", designed by EDIBON, is a compact teaching unit with wheels to facilitate its mobility. It represents a controlled gas system that supplies a forced air gas burner. It allows the study of the arrangement, measuring elements and safety devices required by a forced air gas burner system.
The unit works with air, simulating the operation of the burner, so it can be safely used in a classroom or laboratory. It includes a compressor that supplies the air required to work with the unit.
The main element of the unit is a commercially available forced air gas burner that includes the required safety systems: gas pressure, flame detection, thermostat, pressure switch, flame safeguard, etc. All the states of the burner and the sequences of the burner start control can be displayed in a front panel with LEDs and, thus, monitor the burner flame safeguard service.
The unit allows for regulating the supply gas flow with a pressure regulator and the intake gas flow to the burner through a control valve, as well as setting the nominal load of the burner and calculating the gas flow rate and operating volume. The unit includes a flow meter, a pressure regulator and a real gas meter for those purposes. There are analog manometers and tube manometers to observe the most important operating pressures.
The unit has a HMI screen in the back side that allows the selection of errors in the burner sequence, programming it to simulate these errors when it is started. With this system the student can observe the different breakdowns and learn how to identify them.
The unit can be used by several students at the same time. They can act on the elements of the line, carry out maintenance and tune-up operations and fault finding and repair.
