The module is designed to allow the trainees to investigate the functioning and behavior of a stirred tank with double jacket and coil in operation.

                                     
  • The module is connected to the main unit (heat exchanger supply unit) using quick release couplings.
  • The jacketed stirred tank is fitted with a coiled tube.
  • In heating mode with jacket, the hot water flows through the jacket and transfers a part of the thermal energy to the cold water in the tank.
  • In heating mode with coiled tube, the hot water flows through the coil and heats the cold water in the tank.
  • The flow regulation valves of the heat exchanger supply unit are used adjust the flow rate of hot water.
  • Temperature sensors are installed to the main unit for measuring the inlet and outlet temperature are located at the supply connections.
  • Time curves can be plotted and displayed graphically during experiments.
  • The measured values can be recorded and processed using data acquisition software.
  • The educational unit is mounted to a robust base.
