PRI : Practice of Instrumentation

37h00 – 5 days


> Attendees will acquire the base theory of operation of measuring instruments, control valves, and positioners.
> They will learn how to install, wire, set, tune, maintain and troubleshoot them.


> The course provides valuable information via lectures on theoretical concepts, backed-up by direct hands-on training in fully equipped classrooms.
> More than 50% of the time is dedicated to actually working on various industrial instruments installed on test benches.
> A knowledge assessment test followed by its proofreading will be run at the end of the training.


Knowledge of basic mathematical concepts and physical laws, although not required, would be helpful.


Operations and Maintenance Technicians and Engineers, who are new to instrumentation, or who whish to be “cross trained”.



> Structure of a basic feedback control loop.
> P&ID’s drawing standards.
> Basic electricity, 4 – 20 mA loop.


> Pressure : Concept, different pressure types, units, sensors, analog electronic and smart transmitters, installation and calibration, pressure switch.
> Level : Indicator, hydrostatic head, capacitive, ultrasonic, nuclear, radar, float, buoyancy, resistive, mechanical type, vibrating blades, rotating paddle).
> Flow : Differential pressure, rotameter, electromagnetic, ultrasonic, turbine, vortex, rotary, Coriolis, thermal, flow indicator and switch.
> Temperature : Thermocouple, resistance temperature detector (RTD), infrared radiation pyrometer.


> Theory of operation, bodies, trim, actuators, flow characteristics, sizing, cavitation, shutoff pressure, leak tightness, calibration.
