Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer

Safe, practical, realistic

TecQuipment developed its Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer range alongside educationalists and students. It offers an extensive selection of high-quality, robust equipment. All products in the range have advanced educational performance to meet practical thermodynamics experiment needs effectively and safely.

TecQuipment designed the products to reach equilibrium in the shortest possible time, allowing students to complete experiments in a single laboratory session. Students can test thermodynamic theories for themselves and gain first-hand experience of working thermodynamic processes.

Fundamental and applied thermodynamics

The Thermodynamics range is extremely broad, covering topics such as properties of fluids, heat and work transfer.

One of the most popular applications of thermodynamic principles is found in internal combustion engines and gas turbines. Until “green” technologies are sufficiently developed these machines will continue to dominate the way we produce power and travel. A key goal to moving forward is to improve their performance and efficiency – making the most of our limited resources – so future engineers need to have a sound, basic understanding of the thermodynamic principles of these machines and how they work in reality. Therefore, TecQuipment offers a range of equipment that clearly demonstrates internal combustion engines and gas turbines that is economic, easy to use and specifically designed for student use.

Modular fluid power

Equipment in the innovative Modular Fluid Power (MFP) machines also links in to the Thermodynamics range. The Reciprocating Compressor Module (MFP104) and Centrifugal Compressor (MFP105) show thermodynamic principles, in addition to the pumps, turbines and fans in the range. An interchangeable dynamometer drives all MFP products. Each machine includes all the instruments needed to measure its performance.

Automatic Data Acquisition

To make the best use of laboratory time, many of our thermodynamics products are available either with custom-made automatic data acquisition software, or are compatible with TecQuipment’s unique Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS®).

VDAS® allows our equipment to connect easily to a suitable computer to provide accurate real-time data capture. Raw data can be transformed instantly into sophisticated graphs and tables using the VDAS® software and also easily exported to other programs. There are other solutions on the market, but none which offer the convenience, functionality or wide range of features.
