Process measurement and instrument configuration II


Building on the first course, different measuring technologies of Temperature pH and Density are examined, their strengths and weaknesses and instrument selection criteria. You will study the different components and learn their specific characteristics with the help of working models employing PID and fixed term control elements with flow, level, pH, temperature and interface measurements.


  • The course modules involve all of the elements of process instrumentation, basic measuring principles, selection, installation requirements, setup, operation and device exchange (maintenance and repair).

  • The course layout is designed so that the participant receives both practical experience with hands on exercises and theoretical knowledge via class room tutorials.

  • Even during the theoretical sessions, the trainers use active teaching methods using the UTR and follow through with assessments to maximise the impact of the theoretical content and reinforce its absorption by the trainee.


  • Temperature: This module introduces temperature sensors and a temperature control loop. Common temperature sensor selection problems and how to avoid them.

  • Pressure II: This module introduces a pressure control loop, control valve and frequency inverter.

  • Oil application: This module offers the possibility to add an oil layer on the water for interface measurement in the mixing tank. In addition with a cascade control, a water/oil mixture can be produced.

  • Density: In this module density measurement with different techniques: Coriolis, vibronic, gamma. How different application conditions influence the measurement and selection of the measurement principle

  • Plant Asset Management: In this module we cover Digital communication, most important protocols used, the advantages and disadvantages of each technology. The meaning of Plant Asset Management and Life Cycle Management.

Who should attend?

  • Project engineers and management, Instrument technicians, Factory engineers and management, Quality technicians and management.
