Learning Objective

This flow course provides drinking and waste water operators with an understanding of the different types of flow meters typically used to measure the flow of water, sludge, air or biogas. For each measuring technology, the training will focus on the principles of operation, typical use cases in a water or waste water treatment plant, troubleshooting basics, installation influences, handling error codes and possible process issues and challenges.

We will also discuss how pressure and temperature can influence the flow measurement of air and gasses as well as the fundamental differences between verification, calibration and validation of instruments to help participants understand how this applies to their operations.


Topics Include:

  • Basics of flow metering
  • Electromagnetic flow meter technology basics
  • Ultrasonic flow meter technology basics
  • Coriolis mass flow meter technology basics
  • Thermal mass flow meter technology basics
  • Troubleshooting basics
  • Flow meter installation influences
  • Handling error codes in flow meters
  • Process influences on flow measurement
  • Fundamental differences between verification, calibration and validation
