This working, large-scale fluid process device enables students to receive hands-on training in basic hydrostatic principles and in how to install, calibrate, and maintain process field instruments using a column of water.
The device includes a three-gallon, 36-inch high, clear acrylic tank and a 15-gallon reservoir. The device’s “open architecture” enables students to use quick-connect fittings to install instrumentation of various designs and from many manufacturers at multiple locations within the system and on the tank.
With optional or user-supplied equipment, this device can be used to create basic process loops related to level control, using a variety of measurement and control methods.
This analytic process control system enables students to receive hands-on training related to the study, measurement, and control of water chemistry variables. The device allows students to measure, monitor, and control process variables using industrial-quality sensors and controllers. The device also enables students to calibrate sensors and set up and tune basic control loops.
Water chemistry variables include pH, conductivity, oxidation/reduction potential (ORP), and dissolved oxygen:
- pH is used in combination with conductivity to increase the salt load while maintaining neutrality. This is achieved by introducing diluted hydrochloric acid (HCL) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH).
- ORP is used to measure the change in reduction potential of the batch during the addition of a diluted iodine solution.
- On/Off control of aeration changes the oxygen content.
Quick disconnects enable this training aid to be connected to other data acquisition and control (DAC) training devices to facilitate creating more complex process systems. A clear acrylic mixing tank allows batch process water treatment. A recirculating system enables students to continuously monitor pH, conductivity, ORP, and dissolved oxygen in the mixing tank by using standard, user-supplied, or user-specified instruments.
This working, large-scale fluid process data acquisition and control (DAC) system enables students to receive hands-on training related to the measurement and control of four process variables: level, pressure, temperature, and flow.
The device allows the creation of simple and advanced process loops using common industrial-quality instruments and controllers. The device’s “open architecture” enables instructors to integrate alternate instrumentation as needed to address local training needs and new technologies.
This device can establish cascade, feed-forward, feedback, feedback split range, ratio, and three-element control schemes. Clear PVC piping allows students to see these process changes, based on control parameters or intentional disturbances.
This training device can also be configured to create one complex process loop or two independent process systems, enabling use by up to six students.
Standard, user-specified, or user-supplied instrument packages can easily be installed on two mounting stanchions or two integral 19-inch instrument racks.
This working, fluid process system enables students to receive hands-on training in the design, calibration, and testing of common control valves used in the industry. The device allows students to mount control valves of different designs and from different manufacturers, including diaphragm-type valves.
A magnetic flow meter and two pressure sensors demonstrate performance at different flow rates, using multiple valve plug and trim designs. Students can also perform field calibration of valves and positioners, using a high-quality regulator and test gauge.
With optional or user-supplied equipment, this device can be used to create basic process loops that incorporate flow.
This modular, accurately detailed scale model depicts a typical distillation tower found in petrochemical plants and refineries.
A clear acrylic shell, component cutaways, color coding, and realistic details combine to make this a useful tool for training students in both operations and maintenance. Several tray and packing options are available, allowing customization to match plant-specific training needs.
This range of realistic, sectioned (or “cutaway”) demonstration equipment focuses on components commonly found in petrochemical plants, refineries, and other similar industrial environments.
The sectioning enables students to see the complete internal configuration of each device and allows disassembly for more complete inspection. All primary equipment features have been retained, and replacement hardware is provided where appropriate.
