This introductory course (16 hours) to flow 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

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