  • Product Overview

    Lab-Volt's Geothermal Energy Training System has been designed to maximize learning capabilities by regrouping every subsystem that is found in a real geothermal home energy installation. It teaches the fundamentals of heat transfer, refrigeration, and air conditioning applied to geothermal energy HVAC projects. It is suitable for varied educational requirements: future system designers and builders, maintenance technicians, or students learning energy efficiency.

    Through detailed theory and practical exercises, this geothermal energy trainer is the most efficient and effective way to acquire the knowledge and skills put into practice every day in the geothermal industry.

    Using components found exclusively on a real geothermal HVAC project, this robust training system is built on a mobile workstation sized to fit through standard door openings. This system includes complete curriculum, a complete set of measuring instruments, and all the security and safety devices required to protect the user and the equipment.
