Thermal energy measurement

This test system is designed to measure the heat transfer during the test of heat pumps and chillers with an integrated pump. The thermal energy is measured with a Coriolis mass flow sensor and two temperature sensors which can be positioned at the inlet and outlet of the test object. Additionally a pressure sensor measures the pressure drop of the heat exchanger of the object under test.
