Simulation-based operator training for separators

By Chemical Engineering |

SmartSIM (photo) is a sophisticated solution for efficient implementation of new machine-control systems or optimized training of new operators. It is available for various models of solid-liquid separation machines and systems with a Metris addIQ control system. Among the benefits of SmartSIM training are reduced downtimes, because there are fewer operating errors and lower maintenance costs due to operators being highly trained. SmartSIM includes a computer-assisted classroom training course, which can be used at any time without affecting actual plant operation. Using the original operating interface, trainees have the opportunity to control a “digital twin” of the machine, including the individual parameters of production operations. In the course of the training, participants learn — with on-site support from this company — how to run the machine, respond properly to alarm situations, and improve the performance of the machine or the process. — Andritz AG, Raaba-Grambach, Austria
