This course introduces basic & advance concepts of instrument calibration. The training program explains the characteristics of proper instrument performance as well as how to identify common instrument errors. In addition, the steps in a typical calibration procedure are demonstrated.

This course demonstrates the necessary steps for calibrating pressure, temperature, flow, and dimensional instruments. The program also identifies procedures and set-up equipment for pressure calibration. Emphasis is placed on selection of the appropriate test instruments and interpretation of readings.



After completion of this course, the participant will :

  • Define calibration
  • Recognize if an instrument is properly calibrated by examining the instrument input and output
  • Explain how calibration affects quality, productivity, and safety
  • Identify conditions when calibration is performed such as at an installation, periodic scheduled maintenance, in response to process deviation, and after repair or change in mounting position
  • Recognize accuracy and precision
  • Identify zero shift, span error, combined zero shift and span error, and non-linearity with a pattern of instrument readings on an input/output graph or calibration data sheet
  • Identify the basic elements of a calibration set-up
  • Identify the input values for a five point
  • Calibration check as a percent of the instrument's range
  • Identify zero shift, span error, combined error, and nonlinearit
  • Properly adjust pressure instruments to eliminate errors
  • Property set up and connect the measurement standards for calibration of temperature instruments
