The Gas Home Supply Trainer, ,GHST,, designed by EDIBON, consists of a teaching unit where the elements normally used on any domestic gas installation are arranged on the front panel of the unit as in a real installation.
The unit works with air, so it can be safely used in classrooms and laboratories, and includes real industrial elements. It has an air compressor with reservoir and relief valve, which supplies the air required to work with the unit. Besides, there is a compressed air connection in the front panel that can be connected to the reservoir to use a possible external compressor.
The air supply line, after the reservoir, has an air pressure regulator, relief valve, gas pressure regulator and flow regulation valves. Following a real distribution, air is distributed in two branches that can work separately with the aid of valves. One branch is for the study and simulation of leaks and the other branch, with a real gas connection, to study a normal gas supply pipe and control the maintenance according to current regulations.
There is an industrial gas meter in each branch: a gas meter with one connection in one branch and a gas meter with two connections in the other branch, so they can be compared.
In the leaks detection branch, air is distributed in three ways with microflow regulation valves that simulate the leaks and their detection with a leak detector included in the unit. Besides, it includes a leak detection spray for a quick, easy and reliable detection.
