Test rigs in demand
A test rig, designed specifically for refrigeration training centres and colleges offering F-Gas training and refrigeration compliance courses, is proving extremely popular. The fully mobile rig is manufactured by Bitzer UK and it is ideal for the classroom environment.
With engineers now having to fulfil F-Gas certificate compliance, the rig allows them to carry out all the necessary tasks and tests including the simulation of fault conditions, leak identification, pressure setting, variation of evaporator and fan speed control. They can also change key components, remove pipe-work and braze-in pipe repairs.
The rig incorporates the smallest possible Octagon compressor together with a condenser, evaporator, receiver, suction line accumulator and control panel. Importantly, it is extremely quiet and also compact – vital for the classroom environment.
Any college or training school investing in the rig would expect a quick return on investment with the current focus on F-Gas compliance and training.
