This introductory course (16 hours) on basic instrumentation will start by providing maintenance and engineering personnel with a review of instrumentation technologies, terminology, symbols needed to work in the field. Understanding P&ID’s and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with how instruments communicate with a control system.

Students will be exposed to a variety of instrument disciplines including Level, Flow, Pressure, Temperature, and Analytical. Students will participate in a troubleshooting workshops. The class will be a combination of classroom and “hands-on” training on either the Process Training Unit (PTU), a full-scale, working process skid with on-line instrumentation and controls, or live instruments in training stands designed to simulate operating conditions.

This course is an excellent primer for those who plan to attend specialized schools such as Flow, Level and other schools offered. The course will specifically cover:

  • Coriolis flowmeters
  • Vortex Shedding flowmeters
  • Electromagnetic flowmeters
  • Radar level transmitters
  • Pressure transmitters
  • Differential pressure transmitters
  • Level switches
  • Temperature transmitters
  • Level Instruments

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize the various types of process instrumentation, and have a basic understanding of their use and how they function: Flow, Level, Pressure, Temperature, Analytical
  • Understand basic Piping & Instrument Drawings (P&ID)
  • Know how to properly install and commission process instrumentation
  • Basic knowledge of communication protocols (4-20mA, Digital, Pulse, Frequency)

16 PDH (Professional Development Hours) available upon completion of entire course.
