The Principles and Practice of Flow Measurement training course has just completed another successful run. The three-day course, which attracted participants from six European countries, received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
“This is one of the most respected courses of its type,” says Project Engineer Marc MacDonald, who delivered the training along with his colleague Neil Bowman. “It has been running for over 30 years and is a cornerstone of NEL’s commitment to supporting industry through knowledge transfer.”
The course, which was recently re-jigged to allow it run more frequently and with smaller, more focused, groups, introduces participants to the basics of flow measurement. It provides an unbiased view of the various technologies available and the basic knowledge required to make informed equipment choices.
“Taking part in the course gave participants the opportunity to gain significant practical experience of our cutting-edge equipment,” explains Marc. “For example, they got a demonstration of an innovative clamp-on meter we are helping to develop. They also got the chance to see our world-class facilities in action and to learn about the unique services we offer.”
The course covered everything from the Basics of Fluid Flow through to Multiphase Flow Measurement. It featured a mix of technical content and hands-on lab demonstrations and included a unique Flow Measurement challenge that involved participants in the design of a metering system for an offshore oil platform.
The 2019 course received excellent feedback from participants, who all assessed it to have been either ‘good’ or ‘very good’. Organisations that sent participants included the Norwegian Metrology Service, Siemens SAS, BEIS, BP and WIKA Instruments Ltd.
