Level/Flow Process Control Troubleshooting | Process Control Skill Training

Learning System: T5552FA

Process control systems, also known as process instrumentation systems, are used in power generation, petrochemicals, manufacturing, and other industries to provide precise control of liquids and gases. Amatrol’s Level and Flow Process Control Troubleshooting Learning System (T5552FA) teaches calibration, installation, operation, and troubleshooting of flow and liquid level process control systems and components. The system uses industry-standard components mounted and plumbed in a closed-loop circuit to provide learners with the opportunity to practice manual and automatic control of a process instrumentation system by controlling the water flow rate between two tanks or the liquid level in one tank.

Amatrol’s Level and Flow Process Control Troubleshooting training system uses FaultPro, the industry’s only electronic troubleshooting system, to offer hands-on troubleshooting skills like in-circuit component testing methods and universal digital controller troubleshooting. The system also includes the industry’s best hands-on process control troubleshooting training, covering thirty-six (36) electrical faults, six (6) mechanical faults, PID controller programming errors, flow transmitter programming errors, and I/P converter calibration errors.

Extensive Component and System-Level Process Control Troubleshooting

Amatrol's Level and Flow Process Control Troubleshooting training system teaches process instrumentation troubleshooting knowledge and skills at the component and system level. Topics include: testing methods for flow valves, circulation pumps, pilot lights, process meters, and PID controllers; how to use a voltage tester; how to troubleshoot process instrumentation switches and relays; how to troubleshoot process sequences; hands-on in-circuit component testing; how to test and analyze process control circuit signals; troubleshooting flowcharts and tables; using status and diagnostic indicators; and using wiring diagrams and P&IDs in troubleshooting. The system features FaultPro, Amatrol’s world-class electronic fault insertion system, which allows instructors to set and tailor faults for learners in order to turn their weaknesses into strengths.

Industrial-Grade Process Control Components for Hands-On Learning

The Level and Flow Process Control Troubleshooting training system includes industrial-grade components, such as a centrifugal pump, electric motor, regulators, gauges, and three different controllers on the control panel: relay control for automatic on/off liquid level control, the PID controller for variable electronic control of either liquid level or flow, and PLC control for both on/off and PID control of the system. The system is extensively instrumented, which enables learners to observe the system’s operation, understand the effects of external disturbances, and how their hands-on adjustments affect the process.

In-Depth Level and Flow Process Control Curriculum

Amatrol's Level and Flow Process Control Troubleshooting 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 level and flow process control topics covered include: process control instrumentation; industrial safety rules; instrument tags; piping and instrumentation diagrams; level measurement; liquid level control; automatic control methods; basic flow measurement and control; control loop performance; and component and system level troubleshooting.

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.
