Proper troubleshooting and maintenance of plant systems equipment to reduce downtime and save money requires more than just replacing parts when they get broken. In fact, a "replace-part-when-broken" strategy for maintaining equipment is frequently the most expensive approach you can take. To be effective, maintenance technicians who fix equipment must know why a part needs to be changed out in the first place. In this instrumentation, process measurement and control seminar students will learn what, where and how to measure parameters for the proper monitoring and control of their equipment. When something breaks, they'll now know why. With this understanding, they will be able to work much more efficiently on the industrial systems and processes for which they are responsible. A sound knowledge in instrumentation and control is certain to result in better-qualified technicians and less equipment failures.
