Basic Instrumentation Process Measurement & Control On-Site Training
Learn how to get desired results from your equipment and do away with the “Replace-part-when-broken” maintenance strategy
|Purpose of Seminar:|
Proper troubleshooting and maintenance of plant systems & equipment to reduce downtime and save money requires more than just replacing parts when they get broken. In fact, a “replace-part-when-broken” strategy for maintaining equipment is frequently the most expensive approach you can take. To be effective, maintenance technicians who fix equipment must know why a part needs to be changed out in the first place. Perhaps the real problem isn’t what he thinks it is!
In this seminar students will learn what, where and how to measure parameters for the proper monitoring and control of their equipment. When something breaks, they’ll now know why. With this understanding, they will be able to work much more efficiently on the industrial systems and processes for which they are responsible. A sound knowledge in instrumentation and control is certain to result in better-qualified technicians and less equipment failures. This course is designed to provide workers with the knowledge they need to keep your plant up and running as efficiently and inexpensively as possible.
Determine manipulated, controlled, and measured variables of typical industrial processes. Convert pressure, level, flow, or temperature variables into pneumatic or electrical values.Identify electrical variables that are used by instruments to determine values.Use and calibrate a variety of instruments and transmitters using ISA industrial consensus standard techniques.Identify and use the ANSI/ISA-S5.1 consensus industrial standard process symbols.Troubleshoot to the device level using the Process and Instrumentation Diagram and/or the Instrument Loop Diagram.Perform required calculations to find typical process control parameters using a single loop controller configured in Proportional, Proportional and Integral, Proportional and Derivative, or Proportional and Integral and Derivative modes.Use several different strategies to effectively tune a process controller.
|Who should take this course:|
