Level control is a fundamental aspect of process control in various industries, including chemical, petrochemical, food and beverage, water treatment, and more. Understanding level control is essential for students pursuing careers in engineering, process automation, or any field related to these industries.
The Armfield PCT60 level control system introduces students to fundamental control concepts, such as feedback control, proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers, and closed-loop control systems.
The Level system consists of a reservoir water tank, a variable speed pump, a pressure-based level sensor, and a clear process vessel with
a scale. A proportional valve provides the process vessel drain.
An overflow pipe in the process vessel prevents it from being overfilled and the system allows students to adjust the pump speed and valve opening.
