This course will present applications of modern flow measurement systems. In addition, flowmeter accuracy, performance, sizing, specification, selection, and installation considerations are covered. Focus is on productivity improvement and cost efficiencies of measurement and control. Also, you will also focus on whether, when, and how to use the technologies that measure flow; the effect of fluid properties; and engineering practices required to optimize flowmeter performance. This course includes practical examples of flowmeter selection and problem solutions, with emphasis on basic principles or alternative technologies based on class preference.

You will be able to:

  • Describe principles of operation on specific flowmeter technologies
  • Apply flowmeters in process applications
  • Explain the effect of changing process conditions
  • Identify installation requirements and recommended practices
  • Evaluate flow instrument performance
  • Specify and select the appropriate flowmeter for your applications
  • Solve typical flowmeter problems
  • Analyze calibration methods and the effect of errors on meter performance
  • Size flow elements for specific applications

You will cover:

  • Engineering Practices: Fluid Flow and Physical Properties
  • Differential Pressure Flowmeters: Orifice Plate Flowmeters | Other Technologies
  • Magnetic Flowmeters: Construction | Operating Constraints
  • Mass Flowmeters: Coriolis Mass Flowmeters
  • Oscillatory Flowmeters: Fluidic | Vortex Shedding
  • Positive Displacement Flowmeters: Helical Gear | Nutating Disc | Other Technologies
  • Ultrasonic Flowmeters: Principles of Operation | Installation Considerations
  • Insertion Flowmeters: Available Technologies | Operating Constraints
  • Flowmeter Selection: Types | Selection Criteria | Installation Practices and Maintenance Issues
