Smart Instrumentation & Process Controls

Course Overview

The Control of Processes in today’s industries requires accurate knowledge of process conditions and this, in turn, means accurate measurement of those conditions. Without measurement, there can be no control and no information as to the state of the process.

A greater understanding of the measuring equipment and the instruments can improve the performance of the operator and this, in turn, will improve plant performance. Better knowledge of how equipment is selected and how it is constructed and how it works also helps an operator to identify the cause of problems and prevent their recurrence. Hence, the economic benefits of properly trained and informed operators can be readily quantified.

This course is for those individuals primarily involved in achieving effective results for the industrial processes they are responsible for. This would involve the design, specification, and implementation of control and measurement equipment. The course focuses on real applications, with attention to special installation considerations and application limitations when selecting or installing different measurement or control equipment

Course Objective:

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the various methods of Signal Transmission
  • Correctly connect Electrical and Air-Powered devices
  • Understand the Equipment used in Temperature, pressure, level, and Flow Measurement
  • Understand the Current Loops and Recognize the common output devices
  • Correctly use a range of Industrial Calibration Equipment
  • Understand the Pressure sources and the basic terms of pressure measurement
  • Understand the Level measurement and the basics associated with it
  • Understand the Temperature measurement and the various associated transducers
  • Understand the Flow measurement techniques
  • Understand the Control valve principles and common valve types
  • Understand the principles of turbidity, density, pH, and weight measurement

Who Should Attend?

All those working on process plants are familiar with the general purpose of process measuring instruments and control equipment. This will include process operators and trainee instrument technicians on all types of oil, gas, and chemical plants.
