Back to Catalogue

The Process Trainer (CE117) from TecQuipment is a fully integrated and self-contained benchtop process control apparatus containing valves, pumps, power supplies, and ancillaries to allow flow, level, temperature, and pressure control strategies. It is designed to be investigated individually and in combinations.

Learning Outcomes

TecQuipment’s Process Trainer is a hands-on training system that mimics industrial process engineering. This piece of equipment includes a comprehensive range of process control experiments, from basic to advanced. Using water as the working fluid, the equipment allows safe, practical experiments on control of flow, liquid level, temperature and pressure. Learning outcomes include:

  • Proportional, integral and derivative (PID) control
  • Control of flow
  • Control of level
  • Control of pressure
  • Control of temperature
  • Ratio control
  • Cascade control
  • Multi-loop control
  • Interacting control loops

CE117 Process Trainer Product Details

The equipment consists of:

  • An experiment module
  • A control module
  • TecQuipment’s CE2000 software

The experiment module includes all the essential parts to allow students to create process control systems. The main part is the process vessel, with a stirrer, a temperature sensor, level and pressure sensors, a heat exchanger and vent valve. It also includes two loops, linked by the heat exchanger in the process vessel. One loop is the heating loop with pump, heater tank and heater. The other loop is a process and cooling loop with pump, cooler, fan, valves and reservoir.

The control module links to the experiment module to provide access to the connections of each part on the experiment module. It includes a clear mimic diagram with switches and controls to allow manual control of pump speed, cooler-fan speed, heater power and stirrer. It also includes sockets and a built-in computer interface. This allows the user to link each part of the experiment module to a suitable computer (not included) for remote control and data acquisition.

Supplied with the equipment is TecQuipment’s Control Software for supervisory control of the CE117 and data acquisition. You need a suitable computer to use the CE2000 software.

TecQuipment is a ISO certified company and manufactures in accordance with the latest European Union directives.
