Quantitative investigations on a water-to-air heat exchanger can be performed using this trainer.
The trainer consists of a closed hot water circuit with heater, tank, pump and flow meter. Air is forced through the heat exchanger using a radial fan.
Water and air flow rate are adjustable. The flow rate of water is measured using an electromagnetic flow sensor and an orifice plate flow meter is used for the volumetric air flow rate measurement.
Energy balances can be established by measuring inlet and outlet temperatures. A pressure sensor in the water circuit enables the pump characteristic to be plotted. The measured values can be read on digital displays. At the same time, the measured values can also be transmitted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included.
