Amatrol Geothermal Systems
Amatrol’s 950-GEO1 Geothermal Learning System enables learners to understand and apply their newly obtained skills in the ever-growing area of geothermal energy. This system builds knowledge as well as skills across a broad spectrum, ranging from system startup and operation to shut down and maintenance, in a readily accessible, compact vertical trainer. Harnessing geothermal energy is rapidly increasing in importance as a tool in broadening the energy supply. Designed as a teaching system, this learning system showcases components, often not visible in actual installations, on a vertical panel that permits easy access for hands-on skills and observation. Amatrol includes a ground simulator so that learners gain realistic experience using a continuously operational system like they will experience on an installed system.
Amatrol’s Geothermal Learning System packs a residential-sized system into a 6-ft. (1.83 M) long mobile system that easily fits through a standard door. Major components include a 2-stage compressor with a 2-ton heat pump, ground simulator, air duct with ECM blower, ground source loop, and industrial grade geothermal controller. These components and many more come standard on the 950-GEO1.
Industry Standard System Components and Features!
From its 2-stage compressor and 2-ton heat pump to the ground source loop that includes a flow center and a header loop, Amatrol’s 950-GEO1 delivers features commonly found in installed geothermal systems but often excluded from training systems. These include a variable speed ECM air blower, water coil heat exchanger, sight-glasses at many points in the system for observing the refrigerant cycle, ample temperature and pressure monitoring, electrical test points, ground simulation, and even the high-density polyethylene pipe specified for use in installed geothermal systems. These components are clearly labeled and mounted for easy observation on a vertical panel, allowing learners to easily observe and evaluate system operation and performance.
