Description

The Level & Flow Process Control Trainer is a single loop system allowing the study of the principles of process control, using liquid level and flow rates as the measured process variables.

Objectives

  • Flow and Level control
  • On-Off and proportional control
  • P, PI and full PID control
  • Advanced process control

Function

The Level & Flow Process Control Trainer is a single loop system allowing the study of the principles of process control, using liquid level and flow rates as the measured process variables. The system is a completely self-contained, low pressure flowing water circuit supported on a benchtop-mounted panel, making it suitable for individual student work or for group demonstrations. It comprises a dual compartment process tank, linked to a sump tank by manual and solenoid operated valves. Water is pumped through the system, via a variable area flow meter and motorised control valve. Level is measured in the process tank. Flow is measured through an optical pulse flowmeter.
