Fundamentals of Flow Measurement

Training Course

Training Course

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 will enables delegates to understand the issues surrounding flow measurement and provides 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.
