Thermal control of a recator

This unit shows a common issue in process industry: a jacketed vessel connected to a thermoregulation group.

The aim is to run the thermal process properly, to compare the running modes and understand the consequences on the heated solutions

The user sets the different regulation loops to achieve the optimal thermoregulation process.

Various control loops (single or cascade) may be studied on this test rig. The sensor and actuator signals are available on safety

sockets and can be wired to the controller inputs and outputs as needed to form the chosen control loop.
