The CPT provides hands-on training for process operators and maintenance technicians. These units are built to replicate real-world operating equipment and consists of separate functions all integrated into a compact, effective training unit in order to train personnel in the process industry in a safe manner. Contains pumps, tanks, piping, level control, pressure control, flow control, temperature control, and a PLC (programmable logic controller). There are two ANSI process pumps mounted in parallel on the trainer. There are two tanks and an associated interconnecting piping.
All tanks and piping are stainless steel to minimize corrosion. The level control regulates the level in the top receiver. The trainer has an orifice flow control loop on it. The unit includes a temperature control system with a side stream which flows through a fixed wattage heater.
For safety reasons, the heating unit is equipped with a high temperature shutdown and an over-pressure relief valve. The Programmable Logic Controller is wireless and comes with a touch screen that allows the instructor the ability to program different functions from anywhere nearby.
It is integrated to all the control loop functions of the trainer. It is programmed to operate the system as well as provide cascading abilities between various loops. It can also be programmed to provide supervisory interlock functions.
The process trainers are capable of a minimum of 38 specific training and educational functions with an endless number of potential variables for troubleshooting scenarios on piping, valves, flanges, flow, level, pressure, electrical, instrument, and pneumatics.
