This introductory course will provide maintenance and engineering personnel with a basic understanding of numerous pressure and temperature technologies. This basic portion will focus on concepts applicable to virtually any manufacturer's equipment as well as the skills needed to set up and maintain such equipment. Introductions and lectures on the technologies will be followed with in-depth demonstrations and "hands-on” training exercises. The class will be a combination of classroom and "hands-on training” featuring either the Process Training Unit (PTU®), a full-scale, working process operation with on-line instrumentation and controls, or live instruments in training stands designed to simulate operating conditions.

At the conclusion of the course, attendees should be able to:

• Recognize a broad variety of pressure technologies and understand the strengths and limitations of each
• Recognize a broad variety of temperature technologies and understand the strengths and limitations of each
• Work with instrumentation specialists to specify the best type of pressure and temperature technologies for a variety of applications
• Set-up and commission pressure and temperature devices
• Use commonly accepted communications tools to set-up and verify the health of the instrument and its signals
• Diagnose and correct problems with pressure and temperature products

The course will specifically cover:

• Pressure Transmitters
• Differential Pressure Transmitters - Flow
• Differential Pressure Transmitters - Level
• Diaphragm Seals
• Temperature Transmitters
• RTD/Thermocouple sensors
• Displays & Relays
• Communication Tools & Methods
