Level Measurement Trainer

Model: 617-000

Process control systems maintain precise control of liquid and gas variables, such as liquid level, flow rate, pressure, temperature, and pH level. These multifaceted systems are a critical part of major industries like power generation, refineries, petrochemicals, chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and food processing and bottling.

DAC Worldwide’s Level Measurement Trainer (617-000) is a working, large-scale fluid process system allowing for hands-on training relating to basic hydrostatic principles, as well as the installation, calibration and maintenance of process field instruments, using a column of water.

Level Measurement Training Features Real-World Industrial Components

The level measurement training system includes a 3-gallon, 36" high, clear acrylic tank, and a 15-gallon reservoir. An “open architecture” allows for installation of instrumentation of various designs from many manufacturers at multiple locations within the system and on the tank using quick-connect fittings.

With optional and/or user-supplied equipment, the Level Measurement Trainer can be used for creation of basic process loops relating to level control using a variety of measurement and control methods.

The system requires the #600-006A Economy Standard Test and Calibration Equipment Package and the #600-056 Differential Pressure Transmitter. It includes a caster set, 3-gallon tank, 15-gallon reservoir, centrifugal pump, GFI circuit protection, tank overflow protection, power distribution panel, power supply, pipe stanchion, and #617-500 Use/Exercise Guide.

Level Measurement Trainer Includes User Guide with 8 Hands-On Exercises

The system's Use/Exercise Guide, useful in both an instructor-led or self-directed format, includes eight, hands-on exercises. The exercises include a variety of topics, including: principles of hydraulic pressure, level measurement using a bubbler assembly, effects of level sensor position, level measurement with a dry reference leg, level measurement with a wet reference leg, installation and calibration of a level measurement channel, and installation and calibration of a level measurement channel with zero elevation and suppression.
