A full size, working fluid system allowing for hands-on training in measurement and control as it relates to temperature in an industrial fluid process system. The device allows control loops to be configured employing feedback and feedforward control methods, incorporating thermocouple or RTD inputs. Variable demand and supply disturbances can be inserted using solenoid valves in combination with metered ball valves.

An industrial-quality, shell and tube heat exchanger and two immersion heaters provided within the unit, allow for the creation of a dynamic temperature control system. Both the hot and cold legs can be controlled. Common cold tap water can be used as a cooling water source and is applied through quick-disconnect fittings and valves. An optional chiller can also be provided.

A CPVC piping system provides protection from elevated process heat levels. The unit contains a 24 volt DC power supply and two air regulators with gauges. All 24 volt power sources, air sources, and function switches are conveniently located on the front panel face.

In general, the device has the look and feel of actual industrial hardware, and allows for a broad range of exercises in temperature and flow measurement and control. Through its standard features and its adaptability to optional, specialized control and measurement equipment, it can replicate many unique industrial control arrangements. Standard, user-supplied or user-specified instruments of any brand can be easily installed, either on a mounting stanchion or on a built-in 19in. instrument rack.
