HYDAC's thermal optimisation course makes learning fun
HYDAC Australia’s Cooling Systems department has a two-day course on thermal optimisation on offer.
“There is the theory side to the course, but the best part is the opportunity the course provides for students to play,” said HYDAC National Development Manager for Cooling Systems Andrea Cimadoro. “By that I mean literally play with our cooling system test rig in a hands-on way and clarify for themselves any questions they may have, such as what makes cooling better or worse.”
Students also have access to the different technology on offer in HYDAC’s range — from air blast coolers and fluid-to-fluid cooling to brazed-plate heat exchangers, chillers and various combinations of other products and technologies.
“This course, which combines theory and hands-on experience of different technologies, is so relevant when taking into account the fact that the pure mechanical engineer has virtually disappeared in this era,” said Cimadoro. “Most engineers emerging from university are mechatronics or robotics engineers.
“And it is the very gaps in learning that fitters and engineers miss in their studies that we focus on and inject into the course.”
To date the course has been successful, with HYDAC training a minimum of six people on demand at its headquarters in Altona because of onsite rig availability for enriched learning.
