Endress+Hauser and the Petroleum Extension (PETEX®), a unit of the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, announce collaboration efforts for training courses starting fall of 2021. PETEX will be hosting courses at Endress+Hauser’s Houston campus and will use the manufacturers’ PTU, the same PTU where Endress+Hauser’s authorized sales and service representative, Vector Controls & Automation Group, hosts Vector University classes for customers in the Gulf region.
The PTUs are full-scale, working process skids with functional instrumentation and controls, closely simulating a real-world environment. Trainees gain hands-on experience with the types of configurations, operation, diagnostics, and troubleshooting found in actual process plants and facilities. This specific PTU features working gas and liquid systems and is equipped with more than 200 modern Endress+Hauser devices, along with a variety of the latest instrument configurations, communication protocols, and software.
