This lab demonstration trainer helps the students to study the basic principles of ice plant cycle. We have designed this test rig keeping in mind the elaborate study of thermodynamics of vapour compression refrigeration cycle by experimentation method. It is a complete packaged solution to measure various parameters of thermodynamics by experimentation. Ice cans are kept in liquid tank, which is cooled by the refrigerant evaporator as in any ice plant. The conventional ice plants take a lot of time approximately 12-24 hours to complete the cycle. Although this ice plant which has been specially designed to demonstrate the same process of ice formation within a period of just 4 hours because of time limitations in lab operations and hence it is most suitable for laboratory use.
