SAIT Polytechnic Using Digi-Cool Digital Refrigeration System Analyzer in Classrooms

SAIT Polytechnic, one of the largest refrigeration trades training program in the world, will use digital refrigeration system analyzers created by the Canadian HVACR diagnostic tool manufacturer Digi-Cool in their classrooms this semester.

The new AK-900s, Digi-Cool’s latest digital refrigeration system analyzers, were donated by Digi-Cool last week. The digital analyzers will be used to train future technicians in SAIT Polytechnic’s “hands-on” classroom—a massive campus that includes a commercial grocery store refrigeration system, walk-in coolers and freezers, and a simulated ice rink system.

“HVACR systems are getting more complex,” says Richard Thompson, a refrigeration apprenticeship instructor at SAIT Polytechnic, “and require more effective diagnostic tools. I firmly believe that collaborations between an educational institution like SAIT Polytechnic and a manufacturer like Digi-Cool help to create better technicians.”

Digi-Cool was granted two North American patents for its HVACR innovations and its new AK-900 digital refrigeration system analyzer will appear in the latest edition of the Fundamentals of HVAC/R, a textbook for HVACR techs published by Pearson Education.
