ABLE Instruments & Controls Ltd has constructed a new, state of the art training facility at their Reading headquarters. The purpose built rig offers a truly unique process environment for high impact, hands-on training.
The facility consists of connected industrial stainless steel vessels and ABLE, working together with leading manufacturers and suppliers, has fitted the rig with instrumentation ranging from the conventional to the very latest cutting edge measurement technologies for flow, level, pressure, temperature, density, gas and liquid analysis.
Different fluids can be pumped between the vessels by centrifugal pumps accommodating a wide span of variable flow rates regulated by both manual and pneumatically operated valves.
The rig also includes a bespoke Rockwell/Allen Bradley extreme environment control system incorporating their industry renowned ControlLogix PLC with scaleable integrated architecture, ATEX rated modules and SIL functionality.
The entire process is managed by Rockwell’s flagship PlantPAx virtual DCS system, a full automation control package designed for managing process plant across the major industries, from the complexity of an offshore platform to the precision of a micro-brewery.
ABLE are offering a comprehensive range of dynamic training courses for all levels with an appropriate balance of class room based theoretical content and hands-on practical elements, covering multiple measurement disciplines.
Reflecting the impartiality of ABLE’s status as the UK’s largest independent supplier, the rig incorporates over 100 process instruments, all providing real time data, offering a platform for customer equipment demonstration and a matchless showcase for our partner companies.
