Pressure Process Control | Tank Pressure & Liquid Level Control Skill Training

Learning System: T5555

Amatrol’s Pressure Process Control Learning System (T5555) allows users to control liquid level and tank pressure simultaneously using a human machine interface (HMI), programmable automation controller (PAC), and variable frequency drive (VFD) that are found in real-world industrial fields, such as pharmaceuticals, bio-technology, and power generation. This functionality allows learners to study important industrial gas blanket applications, as well as gain valuable hands-on experience in practicing a broad range of pressure process operations in both manual and automatic modes.

The T5555 training system features an exposed component layout built to enhance a learner’s understanding of a pressure process control system’s operation. This training system is compact enough to fit through a standard door, yet broad enough to offer all of the skills and topics a learner needs. Additional industrial-grade components on this learning system include: level sensors, which learners can use to set alarms; a centrifugal pump for producing liquid flow; and several valves to show their function and operation in a loop control system.

Control Liquid Level and Tank Pressure Simultaneously

Amatrol’s Pressure Process Control training system is capable of controlling liquid level and tank pressure simultaneously by utilizing industry-standard components, such as a differential pressure sensor and proportional valves. Using an industrial-grade VFD-controlled centrifugal pump, learners can directly practice gas blanket applications in manual or automatic modes for this and similar applications. In manual mode, the HMI is used to adjust the percentage that each of two proportional flow controls are open and to control the flow rate from the centrifugal pump. The system’s pump draws water from a six-gallon industrial pressure vessel to guarantee resilience in this top-quality product. The system’s reservoir tank assembly also includes a strainer, filter/regulator, and a safety lockout valve.

Practice Real-World Pressure and Level Control using an Industrial-Grade PAC

Hands-on skills for process instrumentation can only be achieved using real-world industrial components.  That's why Amatrol's Pressure Process Control training system features the powerful Siemens Simatic S7-1200 programmable automation controller, which provides a human-machine interface for process visualization and control. All electrical components on the T5555 are connected to the control panel, so learners can measure signals and connect devices in a wide variety of configurations to practice industry-applicable skills. This exposed layout allows for easy observation and evaluation of system operation and performance.

Interactive eLearning Pressure Process Control Curriculum

Amatrol's pressure process control training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific pressure process control topics covered include: pressure measurement, process system alarms, and automatic control methods. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like connecting and operating a piezoelectric pressure sensor, converting pressure sensor output signals to pressure units, and scaling differential pressure level sensor displays.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
