Principles and Practice

of Flow Measurement
Training Course
25-27 November 2014
East Kilbride, Glasgow



Course Programme and Documentation

Flow measurement is vital to many industrial sectors:

water supply, oil extraction, gas distribution and much of
the process and pharmaceutical industry depend on flow
meters for quality control and custody transfer. To obtain
the required level of accuracy at an appropriate price, it is
crucial that the right meter is selected for the application
and that it is appropriately used. However, the flow meter
user is faced with a bewildering array of technologies and
conflicting claims from manufacturers.

This course will cover the key aspects of flow

measurement and will consider all general meter types
and their applications.

Track Record

The course is intensive and, experience has shown, is one

that makes the best use of delegates time. Each attendee
will receive a comprehensive set of training course notes
which can be used for future reference purposes.

This highly successful flow measurement course offered

by NEL has been running for over 30 years and regularly
attracts bookings from companies around the world and is
included in graduate training programmes in a number of
blue-chip companies.
The course enables delgates to understand the issues
surrounding flow measurement. It also provides the
delegate with unbiased view of the various technologies
available and the basic knowledge required to make
informed choices.

Who Should Attend

It is expected that delegates will have an engineering or
science background and training.

The programme consists of modules presented by NEL

staff and practical demonstrations using NELs flow
measurement facilities. Also included are an introduction
to the UK National Standards for flow measurement, and
open discussion sessions where participants can raise
work-place situations for dialogue and advice.

Lunches will be attended by the course presenters along

with all delegates. As well as being a further opportunity
to learn about flow measurement from the experts, this is
also an excellent opportunity for delegates to network.

Practical Sessions
In addition to the classroom sessions, delegates will
have several opportunities to learn in the working
environment of the flow measurement facility. Calibration
demonstrations with worked examples of the data
processing are included within the course. A variety of
different flow meters and visual display models will be
seen in operation at NELs facilities thus helping delegates
understanding of the theoretical principles involved.
During the practical sessions at NELs flow measurement
facility, delegates will learn about the techniques and
methodologies used within the UK National Standards for
flow measurement.
