"Outstanding review of fluid properties and impact on meter performance. Great survey of meter technologies." ~Terry Terezakis, Performance Engineer

This course presents the principles and applications of modern flow measurement systems. Emphasis is on flowmeter accuracy, performance, system design, sizing, specification, installation, and maintenance requirements.

You will be able to:

  • Describe principles of operation of different flowmeter technologies
  • Design a system to make practical and precise industrial flow measurements
  • Calculate the effects of fluid properties on flowmeter performance
  • Evaluate flowmeter performance statements and compare them with application requirements
  • Specify and select the appropriate flowmeters for different applications
  • Create installation detail drawings to obtain flowmeter accuracy and performance
  • Identify requirements for flowmeter calibration
  • Solve typical flow measurement problems
  • Perform flowmeter compensation and totalization calculations
  • Plan maintenance activities required by different flowmeter technologies
  • Illustrate flow and related phenomena (piping hydraulics, Reynolds Number, cavitation, etc.)
  • Size flow elements for specific applications
