In modern process technology, media such as water and compressed air are usually provided centrally in a supply unit. Control and monitoring of the processes take place in the respective process units.

The Process control engineering experimental plant RT 590 developed by GUNT presents such a scenario in a practical manner.

The RT 580 facilitates practical learning in the control of three controlled variables which are commonplace in process engineering.

A circuit with a collecting tank, pump and graduated tank is provided for control of level and flow rate. A pneumatic control valve is used as the actuator. There is a valve in the tank outlet to generate a disturbance variable in level control. Cascade control is possible whereby the level in the tank is controlled by way of the flow rate...
