FlowScanner Data Acquisition and Interpretation

Course 1427      CEUs: 2.8

This course is for personnel who will perform and interpret control valve diagnostic testing using a FlowScanner.


This 4-day course uses lecture and hands-on labs to teach students to properly acquire and analyze diagnostic data using the FlowScanner. This course teaches proper setup of hardware and software, accurate entry of data, and other procedures that are required to ensure accuracy when acquiring data. Also covered are good techniques in interpreting and analyzing the collected data. Actual case histories form a basis for teaching interpretation skills.  Students will test and diagnose a sampling of valves in which specific problems have been ntroduced. Students who complete this will:
•  navigate features of FlowScanner software
•  correctly mount sensors and related FlowScanner hardware on standard air-operated valves (AOV's)
•  enter valve, instrument, and actuator data
•  correctly enter test parameters
•  perform various step and stroking tests to collect diagnostic data
•  analyze typical/atypical, FlowScanner data
•  create/view standard FlowScanner reports
