SIMUOIL TM   is an oil furnace simulator and troubleshooting training system, designed for HVAC students and service technicians. The simulator is an invaluable tool for teaching the basics of oil furnace operation and troubleshooting, as well as improving the service skills of experienced technicians.

SIMUOIL simulates four different configurations of generic oil furnaces that a service technician would commonly encounter in the field. The configurations include:

  1. Cad cell primary control with one-pipe gravity feed tank
  2. Cad cell primary control with 2-pipe buried tank
  3. Stack-mounted primary control with one-pipe gravity feed tank
  4. Stack-mounted primary control with 2-pipe buried tank

Indoor and outdoor temperatures, room thermostat, burner air shutter, draft regulator, fuel pump pressure, and electrodes are all adjustable in the simulator. Up to 30 different mechanical and electrical faults may be inserted into the simulator, as shown in the Fault Lists below.
