The JobMaster Process Control – Flow Trainer simulates industrial plant systems found in oil & gas, chemical and food production plants around the world. This training system, part of the JobMaster Self Assembly Process Plant, makes an excellent platform for training in all aspects of liquid flow instrumentation and engineering.
Trainees learn the theory and application, gaining skills in installation, calibration, tuning, optimization, maintenance and control using a safe medium: water. The self-assembled trainer provides the flexibility to construct different designs, simulating a real world industrial plant environment for a wide range of educational experiences in flow control studies.
The trainer arrives unassembled and as part of the learning process students build the platform, select and connect instruments and wiring, configure the panel mounted P.I.D. controller and commission the ‘plant process’.
The process control training software and can be integrated with multiple industrial-standard buses including the latest technologies from HART, Foundation Fieldbus, and Profibus.
Flow control serves to demonstrate and teach the measurements and control of liquid flow processes. Flow Process Control course gives students hands-on experience raising and lowering water flow rates to preset levels using manual control and auto-tuning methods. Students create variable demand and supply disturbances by opening an outlet valve along the supply pipe.
