This training class discusses both existing and new refrigerants used in today’s vehicles including R1234yf. We discuss new and modified components of modern A/C systems including IHX (internal heat exchanger) and the recent changes to them. The new SAE J-standards in effect today are defined and discussed. Different A/C compressor designs are explained as well as some new service and testing techniques. In addition, we present a review of A/C thermodynamics, the A/C cycle loop and some proven best practices for the teaching of these topics to your students. We use our EM-2000 trainers to demonstrate a “hands-on” method of teaching these subjects. Hybrid A/C systems are covered as well as the new refrigerant oils used in them. A class handout and editable Power Point are available for this class.

I got the half car out of the crate and working yesterday and today I had my Level 3 Electronic Climate Control diagnostics lab using it. This teaching aid is great! The workmanship and design is excellent and it is just perfect for the Level 3 curriculum, including the upcoming changes. We were fortunate that the IPro scan tool we received from the Uniselect donation communicates quite well with the Audi CAN bus system. The Audi also has the electronically controlled, clutchless compressor which is covered in our theory classes so it's a good reinforcement to be able to see it in action, manipulate it and communicate with it. I am very pleased with the quality and applicability of our ConsuLab products (including the engine/AC bench we got recently). They allow me to teach up to 8 students in great detail, whereas only one or two at a time can be involved in a full car. I am looking forward to the imminent arrival of our AC board. Thanks for your excellent insight of design and quality of manufacturing.Prof. Thomas Brown, Centennial College
