Calibration and Accuracy in Process Measurement

A lot of time and money is spent on accurate measurements in process. It is very easy to spend a lot of money on seemingly inexpensive sensors; operators lose a lot of time to switching out sensors and correcting incorrect calibrations. Additionally, plants are very conscious of maximising their yields, and accurate sensor equipment is a critical part of this. This one day course outlines optimum calibration and measurement methods to obtain the most accurate measurements possible in process environments.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • The anatomy of a sensor
  • Sensor selection for your processes
  • How and why sensors are calibrated
  • Different calibration methods available, and which method is most applicable
  • Cleaning sensors
  • Different error sources in measurements, and ways to combat them

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of measurements
  • Select an appropriate sensor for your various process environments
  • Identify and minimise error sources in process measurements
  • Select the most suitable calibration method for your process measurement
  • Clean sensors to improve sensor accuracy and lifetime
