This Instrumentation for Plant course is for individuals involved in the maintenance of process plant who would like to expand or refresh their knowledge of typical process measuring instrumentation. The course offers the delegate the benefit of increased understanding of many of the different measurement principles they encounter on a frequent basis associated with the operation of the plant. It is a theory and practical based course covering the fundamentals of how pressure, level, flow, and temperature are measured with typical instrumentation. The course will provide delegates with an understanding of how instruments are configured and calibrated.
