Fundamentals of Flow Measurement

Vital to many industry sectors

About the Course

This course will cover the key aspects of flow measurement and will consider all general meter types and their applications. Also included is an introduction to the UK National Standards for flow measurement, and open discussion sessions where participants can raise work-place situations for dialogue and advice. The course is intensive and, experience has shown, is one that makes the best use of delegates’ time.

Introduction & Objectives

Flow measurement is vital to many industrial sectors: water supply, oil extraction, gas distribution, and much of the process and pharmaceutical industry depend on flow measurement for quality control and custody transfer. To obtain the required level of accuracy at an appropriate price, it is crucial that the right meter is selected for the application and that it is appropriately used. However, the flow meter user is faced with a bewildering array of technologies and conflicting claims from manufacturers.

This foundation-level course is a pre-cursor to TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s 3 day Principles and Practices of Flow Measurement Course and enables delegates to understand the issues surrounding flow measurement. It also provides the delegate with an unbiased view of the various technologies available and the basic knowledge required to make informed choices. Key aspects of flow measurement, all general meter types and their applications will be discussed and explained. 

Course Content:

  • Module 1: The Basics of Fluid Flow
    An introduction to the basic theory of fluid flow and measurement technology
  • Module 2: Traditional Flow Measurement Technology
    A description of flow measurement techniques that are well established in industry
  • Module3: Modern Flow Measurement Technology
    A description of modern or developing flow measurement technologies
  • Module 4: Multiphase Flow Metering
    An account of current multiphase flow metering
  • Module 5: Measurement Uncertainty
    A description of the basic theory of measurement uncertainty
  • Module 6: Meter Management
    A description of the techniques used to optimise meter performance
  • Module 7: Network Management
    The techniques used to efficiently manage and analyse data from a network of flow meters
  • Q & A session and close.

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is new to flow measurement both in a technical and non-technical capacity including technicians, engineers, sales people, administrators and managers. The course is intensive but will make an effective use of delegates’ time.
