PCT61 - Flow Control

Flow process control is a critical aspect of various industries, including chemical, petrochemical, manufacturing, and food production.
Students who understand flow control principles are better prepared
for careers in these fields.

Proper flow control is essential for optimizing production processes.
Students learn how to regulate the flow of materials or fluids in a way
that minimizes waste, maximizes product quality, and improves overall process efficiency.

The PCT61 Flow control system introduces students to fundamental
control concepts, such as feedback control, proportional-integral-
derivative (PID) controllers, and closed-loop control systems.

The Flow system consists of a water tank, variable speed pump, a
turbine type flow sensor, an electrically operated proportional
valve and a variable area flow meter (rotameter).

This allows students to adjust the flow rate via the pump speed
and the valve opening to develop a PID based control system.
