Flow School – 101

This introductory course (16 hours) to flow provides maintenance and engineering personnel with a basic understanding of numerous flow technologies. The basic portion will focus on the physics of flow and concepts applicable to virtually any manufacturer’s equipment.  Following this introduction, we will proceed with in-depth training on magnetic and Coriolis flow meters. The class will be a combination of classroom and hands-on training on either the PTU® (Process Training Unit), a full-scale, working process skid with on-line instrumentation and controls, or live instruments in training stands designed to simulate operating conditions.  At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize a broad variety of flow technologies and understand the strengths and limitations of each
  • Work with instrumentation specialists to specify the best type of flow technology for a variety of applications
  • Set up and commission flow instruments from differential pressure transmitters to Coriolis flow meters
  • Use on-board and pc based tools with instruments to verify the health of the instrument and its signals
  • Diagnose and correct problems with vortex, magnetic, differential pressure, Coriolis, and ultrasonic flow meters

This course will specifically cover:

  • DP Transmitters/Primary dp devices
  • Vortex Shedding Flow Meters
  • Electromagnetic Flow Meters
  • Coriolis Flow Meters
  • Ultrasonic Flow Meters
  • Thermal Dispersion Flow Meters
  • Volumetric vs. Mass Flow
  • Field Tooling



Course Fee: $1500
