A working, large-scale fluid process system allowing for hands-on training relating to basic hydrostatic principles, as well as the installation, calibration and maintenance of process field instruments, using a column of water. The device includes a 3-gallon, 36in. high, clear acrylic tank, and a 15-gallon reservoir. An “open architecture” allows for installation of instrumentation of various designs from many manufacturers at multiple locations within the system and on the tank, using quick-connect fittings.

With optional and/or user-supplied equipment, the device can be used for creation of basic process loops relating to level control, using a variety of measurement and control methods.
