UK: Axair Refrigeration has donated a number of specialist Eliwell refrigeration electronic controllers on behalf of Schneider Electric to assist students at Bath College.
Robert Burn, Axair Refrigeration business development director, made the presentation and gave a brief on the Eliwell EWPlus defrost controllers and Coldface cold room panel and their uses in refrigeration applications. The Refrigeration VRQ2 students have recently begun their electrical module and will be using the controllers in their installations. Burn delivered the products on behalf of Alessandro Padrin, Schneider’s business development manager – sales.
“Alessandro never lets me down with donations of the latest controllers that are coming into the industry for the new up and coming engineers of tomorrow to use and favour,” said Bath College refrigeration lecturer Simon Robinson. “I feel without this type of generosity we would probably struggle to keep up with the changes in industry, but having this allows us to offer better content and courses at Bath College.”
Bath College offers vocational and academic courses in a wide range of subjects and helps students find a course to make sure they have the knowledge and skills for their chosen career.
The refrigeration course is held in the Somer Valley Construction Skills Centre, where there is a specialist refrigeration workshop. The Construction Centre caters for 500 students and apprentices studying bricklaying, construction, carpentry and stonemasonry, as well as plumbing, electrical installation and refrigeration.
