ICE PLANT TEST RIG

Description:
The Ice Plant Test rig works on simple vapour compression refrigeration cycle and uses R134a or R 404 A as a refrigerant. These are environment friendly. The system is fabricated such that students can observe and study ice formation process. It is also useful to understand working of vapour compression system, its performance and controls used. The arrangement of parts such that, all the parts are visible and working can be easily understood.
