Main Process Training Rig

MPTR

Overview

The training rig is based entirely on industrial technologies. It presents a complex project task for training of piping and plant fitters as well as for maintenance technicians. Mechanical, electrical and hydraulic topics can be covered with this rig.

The rig consists of two units:

  • Unit 1: Flow control and level control

  • Unit 2: Flow control, level control and temperature control

The units work independently of each other. Each unit contains a complete process circuit with pumps, tanks and pipe work including a variety of valves, fittings and measuring instruments. Typical industrial components such as heat exchangers, filters and heaters are also included. Thereby a realistic industrial situation is created.

Learning objectives

  • filling and bleeding pumps and suction pipes

  • turning pumps on and off

  • operating pumps in series or parallel

  • setting parameters and configurating electronic controllers

  • control loops for level, flow rate and temperature

  • measuring pressure loss over a pipe section

  • assembly and disassembly of pipe components such as valves, pipes, measurement instruments and pumps

  • bypass circuits for components

  • fault finding at pipe components and instrumentation

  • maintenance of pumps and other parts

  • monitoring the operation

  • identifying and rectifying malfunctions

  • reading and understanding process schematics.
