The Pressure Vessel and Safety Features Training Unit, "TPVST", is an experimentation of sanitary and heating techniques unit that allows studying the safety elements of a heating system with a pressure tank.
It consists of a circuit of pipes for the study of a heating installation that has a pressure tank with electric heating and a safety group for a closed water.
The main element of the unit is the safety group that allows studying the operation of a set of safety elements in a heating installation. This safety group contains a pressure relief valve and a shut-off valve.
The different input sections allow filling the circuit from different points of the unit. In addition, it has temperature and pressure gauges to control these conditions during the experiment.
On the other hand, it contains different safety devices that act automatically when specific conditions are reached. Such as the thermal expansion valve and the safety valve, which opens automatically when a certain pressure is reached.
