Flow Dynamics, a subsidiary of Badger Meter Inc., will conduct liquid and gas flow measurement training classes during November 2010 at its facility in Scottsdale, Arizona. The classes are intended for managers, engineers, technicians and QA/QC personnel seeking a greater understanding of basic flow measurement principles and application considerations.

A three-day liquid flow measurement training class will be offered on November 3-5, and a three-day gas flow measurement training class will held on November 8-10. These courses were prepared with the job requirements of system design and production personnel in mind and offer practical, hands-on instruction in a range flow-related disciplines.

Students attending a Flow Dynamics training course will attain knowledge of flow measurement technology and learn how to apply the latest flowmeter designs in industrial applications. Classes include an overview of flowmeter selection, with discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each technology, as well as guidelines for meter usage.

In particular, attendees at the liquid course will gain an understanding of the strengths and weakness of different technologies and how to make the best compromises for the application, as well as density and viscosity effects on flowmeter performance. Those participating in the gas course will learn about Gas Law calculations and how they apply to gas flow measurements.

The course curriculum also includes in-depth discussion of the methods and equipment necessary for precision primary and secondary standard flowmeter calibration.
