The hands-on experience provided in such a laboratory can help students gain a deeper understanding of theoretical concepts and practical applications. Temperature measurement, level detection, pressure measurement, and flow measurement are all critical parameters to monitor and control in many industrial processes. It’s great that the laboratory has instruments for all of these parameters, as it will allow students to learn how to measure and control them in different scenarios. Valves are also critical components in many control systems, as they help regulate the flow of fluids or gases. Having different control configurations set up on different panels or rigs is also a great way to teach students how different control systems work and how to achieve specific control objectives. It will allow students to see how the same instruments and valves can be arranged in different ways to achieve different outcomes. The Instrumentation and Process Control laboratory is a valuable resource for students studying chemical engineering.
