"This class was very effective. I learned a lot of detailed information concerning differential pressure."  ~Najla Moore, Facilities Engineer

This course presents the principles and applications of modern pressure, level, and density measurement systems. Emphasis is placed on instrument design technologies; system performance and design; and specification, selection, installation, and maintenances requirements.

You will be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of measurement for monitoring, control, and custody applications
  • Apply the characteristics of fluid properties that relate to pressure and level measurement
  • Identify various types of transducers used in pressure and level measurement
  • Identify the operation of various types of level measurement devices
  • Use specified criteria to select a method for pressure and level measurement
  • Apply general maintenance, calibration, and safety requirements for specification and selection of various types of pressure and level measuring instruments
  • Engineer fundamental level and pressure measurement installations
  • Calculate calibration data for different for process and installation conditions
  • Compare the signal generation and conditioning involved in pressure, differential pressure, and level transmitters
  • Select and apply devices and systems for industrial pressure and level measurement
  • Specify and use smart transmitters in level and pressure measurement processes

You will cover:

  • Review of Measurement Principles: Definitions | Accuracy Statements | Instrument Requirements
  • Pressure Transducers: Pressure Elements | Signal Generation | Pressure/Force Relationships | Selection
  • Performance Criteria: Definitions | Calibration Principles | Procedures and Adjustments | Selection Criteria | Gages | Transmitters | Transducers
  • Smart Transmitters: Operation | Applications | Calibration | Configuration
