ABLE Instruments & Controls Limited has successfully delivered the first training course at their purpose built process-training centre in Dyce, Aberdeen.

The fully booked course offered delegates an “Introduction to Coriolis Mass Flow Meters” with a large proportion of hands-on practical training. The delegates were able to commission and troubleshoot the installed Coriolis meters on the process rig to apply the course theory and truly gain practical understanding of how a Coriolis flow meter operates.

Due to the high demand, further delegates have already enrolled for the next scheduled course in February.

The course is aimed at Instrument Engineers, Design Engineers and Engineering buyers, who have a basic understanding of flow metering, and who want to learn about Coriolis theory and how it has been applied to mass flow metering. No experience with Coriolis Flow Meters is necessary for this introductory course.

The one-day course objective is to enable delegates to:

  • Describe and understand how Coriolis meters operate
  • Generate a specification for a Coriolis meter
  • Understand fundamentals to install and commission a Coriolis flow meter
  • Apply Coriolis technology correctly
  • Troubleshoot and diagnose operating problems

As with all the ABLE training courses, the “Introduction to Coriolis Mass Flow Meters” course will be run on a regular schedule at the Aberdeen training centre, which has already created much interest within the Aberdeen offshore community.

The training rig covers a total floor space of 200m² with over 100 meters of 4 inch flow lines, giving opportunity for practical sessions on all common process instrumentation. Feedback from the course was a great boost for ABLE’s new training venture. All delegates said they would recommend the course to others, and the majority of course grading was excellent.
