The SMC Pumps Training System provides a hardware solution for hands-on training and study in the topic area of pumps and pump characteristics. Students learn how to operate, install, maintain, troubleshoot, analyze performance, and select centrifugal pumps.
The PUMP-200 training system teaches skills related to commonly used pumps in industrial applications, such as centrifugal pumps, which are used in almost every industry to transfer non-hydraulic fluids of various types from one place to another.
The system includes two centrifugal pumps which may be connected as single or dual pump configurations. Pressure gauges are provided to measure the intake and outlet pressures of the pumps while an integrated flow meter provides an accurate indication of the flow rates.
This system provides hardware allowing for hands-on experiments in the operation of pumps. Can be expanded to include different types of pumps and configurations.
The topics include:
• Pump Operation
• Suction Side of Pumps
• Single Pump Operation
• Multiple Pump Operation
• Series Pumps
• Parallel Pumps
A full PID control package can be added to provide more advanced pressure and flow control exercises.
Advanced PID add-on functionality provides the ability to perform true process control applications for flow and pressure utilizing the base equipment. The PID add-on package includes:
– (1) Single Loop PID Controller
– (1) Pressure Transmitter 0-15 PSI (4-20mA)
– (1) Flow Transmitter 0-5 GPM (4-20mA)
– (2) Analog Meter (4-20mA)
