Basic Instrumentation with Flow Training

Basic Instrumentation and Flow:

This NEW introductory combination course (24 hours) on basic instrumentation and flow combines two of our most popular courses in a 3-day total immersion experiential training.  

Instrumentation Concentration

Instrumentation portion 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)

Flow Concentration

Flow portion will start by providing maintenance and engineering personnel with a basic understanding of numerous flow technologies. The basic portion will focus on the physics of flow and concepts applicable to virtually any manufacturer’s equipment. Following this introduction, we will proceed with in-depth training on magnetic and Coriolis flowmeters. The class will be primarily “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.

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

  • Recognize a broad variety of flow technologies and understand the strengths and limitations of each
  • Work with instrumentation specialists to specify the best type of flow technology for a variety of applications
  • Set up and commission flow instruments from differential pressure transmitters to Coriolis flowmeters
  • Use on-board and PC-based tools within instruments to verify the health of the instrument and its signals
  • Diagnose and correct problems with vortex, magnetic, differential pressure, Coriolis, and ultrasonic flowmeters The course will specifically cover:
  • DP Transmitters/Primary dp devices
  • Vortex Shedding flowmeters
  • Electromagnetic flowmeters
  • Coriolis flowmeters
  • Ultrasonic flowmeters
  • Thermal Dispersion flowmeters
  • Volumetric vs. Mass Flow
  • Field Tooling
