CoolTool Design & diagnosis systems

     Cool Tool is a completely integrated software system able to cover almost any possible need related to design in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning, offering direct information for practical applications of data requested.

     Cool Tool includes a wide range of graphical elements, printable pages and other functions. The comprehensive database includes the main compressors, vaporizers, condensers, dehydrating filters, and eye-glasses and can be used as well for indirect cooling systems.

     CoolTool includes climatic dates at global level so as to allow the calculation of energy efficiency for heat pumps and the most adequate control/adjustment system. It allows the design of the entire piping network, the calculation of pressure loss, dimensioning of mono/double riser tubes, the selection of parts, the calculation of load for air conditioning cooling, elaboration of documentation, drawings, calculation of refrigeration load, the list of materials, etc.

     It contains a comprehensive data base, including more than 22,000 parts and components which is continuously updated.

Module 15: CoolTool Diagnostics

     It is now 20 years since CoolTool is used for the calculation and design of refrigeration systems. All this time, more and more users wished to have access to one system able to mesure and analize refrigeration plants and to calculate correct algorithms from CoolTool.

     In order to respond to customer requests, the new version of CoolTool includes a diagnosis module entitled “CoolTool – DiaGnostics” – a combination of hardware & soft components as solution for optimization of each type of refrigeration circuit. The hardware component is divided into three basic equipments.

     The first equipment is “CoolTool DiaGnostic Masterbox” and it is the heart of the system. This collects data from the other components, with or without laptop. As a system independent from the other systems, controlled by the help of a touch screen, it writes the measurements done on a SD memory card or sends them directly to a laptop by means of the USB interface. In the Masterbox area, there can be directly connected up to 8 temperature sensors PT1000 and suplementary pressure sensors, as many as needed.

     The second equipment is “CoolTool DiaGnostic Sputnik” and was developed in order to consider the heat exchangers at great distance. Up to nearly 200m distance, it collects data from temperature and pressure sensors and then sends the information to the Masterbox.

     The third equipment, complimentary to the system is “CoolTool DiaGnostic Powermeter”. It collects the electric parameters from compressors, fans or solenoid valves and sends them to the Masterbox or Sputnik.

     All the three equipments function from 8 up to 24 hours independently from the power supply by thehelp of an accumulator. The Module DiaGnostic Software calculates the measures values.

     As in the case of the other CoolTool modules, all existent data can be used in final diagnosis of the analyzed system. Results are represented by reports and diagrams for COP, efficiency, capacity and in a p-h log diagram.

     If a laptop is connected to the Masterbox, all calculations and measurements can be seen in real time. For example, there can be calculated in real time the pressure drop on the suction pipe and this can be seen in a graph.

     By using just the basic package CoolTool DiaGnostic, there can be saved and calculated any (compact) application / system.

     The standard package CoolTool DiaGnostic offers the possibility to also install other external systems, as for example in the case of Supermarkets or Industrial Applications. The package offers professional solutions to the user in order to be able to conduct any type of diagnostic inside the systems.

     CoolTool DiaGnostic also offers an efficient system to ease the work ofthe user in making the diagnostic for a refrigeration system.
