RT 450.02 Controlled System Module: Flow Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  The RT 450.02 consists of a rotameter as the principle element and uses water as the working medium. A valve can be used to adjust the flow resistance and thus change the flow properties of the controlled system.
  A major advantage of this controlled system is that the rotameter allows all changes in the flow rate caused by faults or responses to a control action to be directly observed.
  A control loop for flow control experiments is set up using the base module RT 450, a control valve (RT 450.2x), the RT 450.10 controller and a sensor (e.g. RT 450.34).


Learning Objectives / Experiments
- setting up of a flow control loop
- comparison of different sensors for flow measurement
- level / flow cascade control (with RT 450.01)
* Main element in constructing a flow control loop
