Training Course Syllabus:


Instrumentation, Process Measurement & Control - Industrial Training

Learn how to get desired results from your equipment
Do away with the “Replace-part-when-broken” maintenance strategy
An In-Depth 2 Day Course for Building, Plant & Facility Maintenance

Purpose of Seminar:

Is your strategy for maintaining equipment “replace a part when it’s broken?” This approach to equipment maintenance is often the most expensive. Proper troubleshooting and maintenance of plant systems and equipment to reduce downtime and save money requires more than just replacing broken parts. The most effective maintenance technicians who fix equipment know the reason for changing out a part in the first place.

The purpose of this seminar is to teach students what, where, and how to measure parameters for the proper monitoring and control of their equipment. Students will be able to understand why something breaks and be able to work more efficiently on the industrial systems and processes they are responsible for. The result of sound knowledge in instrumentation and control is better-qualified technicians and less equipment failures. After finishing this course, students will have valuable knowledge they need to keep plant systems and equipment running as efficiently and inexpensively as possible.

Who should take this course?

Anyone who works with manufacturing or process equipment in industrial settings will benefit from this seminar. General maintenance personnel, workers in cross-training programs, electricians, and engineers will find this course extremely valuable. These courses are filled with people from many different industries, skill levels, company sizes, and job titles. Our past attendees for this course include maintenance personnel in:

  • Manufacturing Plants
  • Food, Beverage & Meat Processing Plants
  • Compressed Gasses
  • Packaging Plants
  • Building Facilities
  • Oil Refineries
  • Utilities
  • Power Plants
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Metals & Mining

Learning Objectives

  • 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.
