Process technology training simulators offer improved skills

Improved operator and engineer skills for UOP Unionfining and UOP FCC processes are provided by newly available process technology training simulators.

Announced as “intended to improve operational excellence and profitability at refineries,” the simulators allow process engineers and operators to develop troubleshooting skills and gain experience in a safe, repeatable, controlled environment.

Built using Honeywell UniSim simulation platform, the trainers are based on typical UOP process technology designs. Unlike other simulators, the new types embed proprietary reactor models, operating philosophy, and engineering expertise — directly into the training simulator software. Simulators include realistic exercises that mimic real-life operations and allow an operator to experience upset conditions typically only experienced over a lifetime, notes the developers.

The comprehensive operator training solution with web-based training for process fundamentals is followed by hands-on skills practice using the Training Simulator. Additional training simulator data are free.
