Our Custom Process Trainer (CPT)

These units are built to replicate real-world operating equipment and consist of separate functions all integrated into a compact, effective training unit. Contains pumps, tanks, piping, level control, pressure control, flow control, temperature control, and a PLC (programmable logic controller).

Our Distillation Training Unit (DTU-1)

The DTU-1 is an operating unit in the same way that a crude unit in a refinery is an operating unit; the DTU-1 does not duplicate any particular unit or system but is instead a representative system that can be related to any specialized system in the full-scale plant.

Our Pump Demonstration Training Model

Our PDTM-2 is a see-through training model which includes a variety of features that can be used to train operators or instruct students on the workings of a centrifugal pump. By manipulating the suction, discharge valves, and the RPMs, you can demonstrate cavitation and other pumping phenomena.

Our Fluidbed Catalytic Cracking Unit

Our FCCU can demonstrate cyclone flooding, flow reversal, fluidization, catalyst density, cat-to-oil ratio, the importance of a rapid quench riser outlet, and possible situations that may arise due to problems with the dip legs.

Our Distillation Training Towers

Our Distillation Towers (DTT-5 and DTT-6) are designed to demonstrate the process of liquid traveling downward coming into contact with vapors (gas bubbles) traveling upward thus allowing the cooler liquid to condense any heavy compounds out of the lighter vapor stream.

Our Working Heat Exchangers

Different colored water streams can be circulated through the shell side and the tube side to simulate the workings of a real heat exchanger. Our transparent Heat Exchangers provide the option of complete dismantling and reassembly to show individuals the internal components and positioning.
