Courtesy: Eaton CorporationEaton's Experience Center in Houston, Tex., features six interactive applications for commercial, oil and gas, data center, and utility markets. The applications, which include a full-scale downstream petrochemical plant, are designed to supplement the experience center's hands-on safety, application, product and monitoring training opportunities in a true-to-life industrial environment. The six interactive application areas at Eaton's Experience Center include:

  • A data center that features hot isle containment, electrical distribution and state-of-the-art-emergency backup schemes while learning about solutions for maintaining uptime.
  • A power quality lab, which is designed to help attendees learn about power distribution, surge protection, motor control systems and energy correction capabilities.
  • A petrochemical refinery, which features complete power distribution, motor protection, process instrumentation and life safety solutions, providing many advanced training opportunities.
  • An upstream drilling and production rig, which is designed to help attendees understand weight savings solutions, power distribution technologies and process management through international installation practices.
  • Land-based drilling, which features variable frequency drives (VFDs) and automated control systems, the drilling unit highlights energy-cutting advances and sustainable procurement of natural resources.
  • Utility and power distribution, which is designed to help attendees learn about smart grid power distribution technology and energy regulations and smart grid technology. 

The Experience Center's 14,000-sq-ft simulated petrochemical refinery and power distribution grid features more than 8,000 products installed in applications from upstream to midstream to downstream. The interactive environment is divided into process and containment areas that allow visitors to experience a wide range of oil and gas training opportunities for hazardous and non-hazardous applications. The facility's mock refinery gives visitors access to live demonstrations of difficult-to-reach oil and gas applications both offshore and land-based.
