Introduction to Instrumentation and Process Control - Industrial Training Seminar

Look at what they are saying...

“This class is one of the best I have taken. From the wiring of devices down to the
individual measuring elements were very clear and explained in laymen terms. Thank you.”
Mike Hinton, Parker Water

“Instructor is very good, easy to listen to, knowledgeable. Even though most of my marks are met expectations, I had high expectations coming in so the course is very good. Was a great class.”
Gary Cottingham, BASF

Understand instrumentation and process control to become more valuable as your multi-skill set expands. You’ll spend approximately 50% of the time working with various instruments and controllers. You will learn to program, connect input/output devices, as well as how to troubleshoot process controls including sensors, transmitters, controllers and final elements.

Use various instruments to measure temperature, pressure, flow rate, level and position, pH and analysis and weight and density. Understand the differences between open and closed-loop controls, feedback and feed forward controls, PLC, DCS and stand-alone controllers.

Find out how analog signals are produced, processed, and protected from noise and differences in proportional, PI and PID control strategies. Understand what causes errors in instruments and how to minimize and troubleshoot them. Learn to calibrate transmitters and tune controller.
