Description of DIDAC Mechanical Heat Pump Apparatus:
The components of the heat pump and its instrumentation are mounted on a high quality ABS plastic panel.
The Mechanical Heat Pump consists of a hermetic compressor, an insulated coiled concentric tube water cooled condenser, a liquid receiver, a thermostatically controlled expansion valve and air heated evaporator.
Mechanical Heat Pump components are clearly but compactly arranged in a manner similar to that used for many domestic air-water heat pumps and all are visible from the front of the unit.
The operating cycle is as follows:
Slightly superheated Refrigerant vapour enters the compressor from the evaporator and its pressure is increased. This brings about a rise in temperature and the hot vapour enters the water cooled condenser. Mechanical Heat Pump is given up to the cooling water and the refrigerant condenses to a liquid before passing to the liquid receiver and then the expansion valve.
