Operator training package for debutanizers
Mynah releases MiMiC Debutanizer package to create a high-fidelity operator training system for distillation columns.
Mynah Technologies has released its MiMiC Debutanizer Operator Training Package that provides a complete environment for teaching safe and effective operations of distillation columns. It is also an effective tool for teaching process and automation engineers the use and design of process controls for distillation towers. This package uses MiMiC Distillation Advanced Modeling Objects for dynamic, accurate process responses.
Key features include:
• Preconfigured and tested high-fidelity dynamic model of a working debutanizer column
• Process control configurations in MiMiC models and Component Studio graphics, as well as DeltaV Simulate modules and DeltaV Operate graphics
• MiMiC Component Studio instructor station graphics
• 13 prebuilt training scenarios covering instrument failures, feed upsets, atmospheric changes, and process failures
• Process snapshots for full production, production at 33%, and column total reflux, and
• Full MiMiC software license for customization of user requirements or as a starting point for customer operator training systems.
“Distillation is the most critical and complex unit operation in many process plants. This package is a cost-effective entry point for training plant operators on the safe and effective operation and control of distillation columns,” said Mart Berutti, president and COO of Mynah Technologies. “Unlike other packaged simulators, the models can work with any control system and can be customized to perform like any installed column.”

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
