Flow Dynamics Inc., a provider of primary standard, NIST-traceable flow calibration equipment and services, will conduct liquid and gas flow measurement training classes during April 2010 at its facility in Scottsdale, Arizona. The classes are intended for managers, engineers, technicians and QA/QC personnel seeking a greater understanding basic flow measurement principles and application considerations.

A three-day liquid flow measurement training class will be offered on April 14-16, followed by a three-day gas flow measurement training class on April 19-21. These courses were prepared with the job requirements of system design and production personnel in mind.

Classes include an overview of flowmeter selection, with 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 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 an in-depth discussion of the methods and equipment necessary for precision primary and secondary standard flow meter calibration.
