This large-scale, realistic, industrial process system facilitates training and practice in field activities regularly undertaken by process operators within the refining, petrochemical and oil & gas industries.

Designed to support process technology (PTEC), process operations programs in US technical college programs, the device can also be applied to similar process operations programs in colleges and universities as well as within industry, directly.

Activities focus on common tasks and formal procedures undertaken on a daily basis by operators in many industries. Examples include; chemical injection, product sampling, strainer maintenance, piping line-up changes, taking equipment in and out of service, pump change-over, routine process parameter checks, normal start-up and shutdown.

Fabricated to ASME standards, and incorporating durable state-of-the-art industrial components, the system will provide years of trouble-free service, whether installed in the training laboratory or in outdoor environments.

With multiple installations completed to date, this proven tool will help make training more memorable, effective, and realistic.
