MPS® PA 204 Complete system

MPS® PA 204 Complete system

With a P, PI or PID control algorithm, (closed-loop) control technology is taught in a demonstrative and practical manner. The temperature sensor – for the Reactor station a PT100 resistance thermometer is used – delivers a uniform signal of 0 – 10 V via the measuring transducer. By way of the continuously controllable heater the controller sets the nominal temperatures and keeps them constant.

At a constant flow rate, the three input materials are mixed into a recipe on the Mixing station. The flow rate is recorded by an electronic flow sensor with an impeller, and is additionally displayed with a float-type flow meter. The controller sets the required flow rate by way of the analogue controlled pump.

The pressure regulation ensures a constant high filtering quality by means of back-flushing. The pressure sensor features an LCD display, analogue output and switching output, always delivering the correct value. A constant high quality is maintained by means of the proportional-pressure regulator.

In the Filling station the level of the dosing tank is recorded with an analogue level sensor. By way of the continuously controllable pump the controller regulates the level to the appropriate nominal value. During filling, the level in the dosing tank is kept constant, thereby optimising the filling quality.

The system consists of the Filtering, Mixing, Reactor and Filling stations. The Filtering station filters a fluid. The filtrate is pumped out of the first tank via different process valves through the filter into the second tank. The filtered fluid is added to the first tank in the Mixing station. The Mixing station mixes different recipes from three storage tanks. The finished mixture is pumped to the Reactor station. The Reactor station regulates the temperature of the fluid. Different temperature profiles, with different mixing times, are run depending on the selected recipe. The Filling station bottles the fluid. The bottles are carried on conveyor belts to the filling position. A pneumatic separator marshals the bottles. The bottles are filled with different quantities from the dosing tank, depending on the selected recipe. 


Included in the scope of delivery: Various facilities for measuring, controlling and regulating


  • Simplifies commissioning, simulation and display using the simulation box
  • Multimedia measuring, controlling, regulating, operating, monitoring and commissioning using FluidLab® PA.
  • Start processes in the PLC or monitor them with the touch panel
  • The control task can be handled by the PLC or by the industrial controller also provided for each station. The controller parameters are then set on the touch panel or directly on the industrial controller. All process variables are displayed in a user-friendly way – including trend graphs – both on the touch panel and on the industrial controller.

The MPS® PA complete system  provides everything needed for an efficient start in measurement and control technology.
