The THALAC/1 has been designed to allow the students to understand the behaviour and characteristics of a heat pump (with air evaporator and water condenser) working in the steam compression cycle and with three compressors connected in parallel.
The refrigeration control unit with several compressors is basically composed of a refrigeration circuit. There is a water condenser, an air evaporator and three compressors located along it.
The low-grade heat source will be the air in the atmosphere. The heat generated by this unit is in form of hot water.
The work introduced is in form of electric energy supplied to the hermetic compressors.
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
