Course Description

This introductory course on instrumentation will provide students with a review of process instrumentation including symbols, terminologies and technologies needed to work in the field. The course will explore the common terms and types of drawings used in instrumentation. Students will be exposed to common definitions, signals, P&ID’s, loop sheets, basic types of instruments and the basics of control loops. Understanding a loop and P&ID and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with how instruments communicate.

Basic flow process measurement will provide students with a review of flow measurement and control for processes including symbols, terminologies, and technologies needed to work in the field. Understanding a flow loop and P&ID and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with how instruments communicate. Students will be exposed to hands-on training utilizing differential pressure transmitters for Venturi tube, Pitot tube, orifice plate, and rotameter, Coriolis flow transmitters, electromagnetic flow transmitters, vortex flow transmitters, ultrasonic flow transmitters and control valves.

Basic level instrumentation process measurement will provide students with a review of level measurement and control for processes including symbols, terminologies and technologies needed to work in the field. Understanding a level loop and P&ID and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with how instruments communicate. Students will be exposed to hands-on training utilizing a process column/tank.

Basic pressure instrumentation process measurement will provide students with a review of pressure measurement and control for processes including symbols, terminologies and technologies needed to work in the field. Understanding a pressure loop and P&ID and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with how instruments communicate. Students will be exposed to hands-on training utilizing pressure gauges, differential pressure transmitters, valves, and pressure drops across valves.

Basic temperature instrumentation process measurement will provide students with a review of temperature measurement and control for temperature processes including symbols, terminology’s and technologies needed to work in the field. Understanding a temperature loop and P&ID and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with how instruments communicate. Students will be exposed to hands-on training utilizing a thermocouple, RTD and a temperature transmitter supporting the HART communication protocol.

The class will be a combination of classroom and hands-on training utilizing the ATN Instrumentation Mobile Training Unit with a working process with on-line instrumentation and controls. All transmitters are Endress Hauser and support the HART communication protocol. This course includes HART communications basics. .
