About this course

Course can be delivered on your premies for a group of 8 .

Modern industry relies on accurate measurement and control of process parameters to ensure high quality products are produced safely and efficiently. Technicians working in the Process and Pharma industries are involved in the installation, configuration, calibration and maintenance of measurement and control systems. This course is designed to give attendees the knowledge required to operate in such environments and it will introduce industrial instrumentation as used for troubleshooting, process measurements and process control.

Training Approach and Method

This one day course will be delivered OnLine /Virtually and as trainer delivers course questions are dropped in to chat…at end of each section.  These questions are answered anonymously and answers shared with the group.   This gives the trainer an opportunity to clarify any points not clearly understood.

Zoom is platform used and open microphone throughout course.

Course Objectives

On completion of this course you will be able to:

Make accuracy statements for various types of measurements.
Differentiate between digital and analogue measurements and describe the advantages of each.
Recognize the importance of pneumatic equipment.
Define pressure and understand the operation of pressure transducers.
How pressure transducers can measure level and flow.
Describe the operation of various devices used to measure both level and flow.
Know how to make temperature measurements using both thermocouples and resistive temperature devices.
Understand how instruments are used for process control.
