Measurement and Instrumentation Lab Equipments

Instrumentation is defined as the art and science of measurement and control of process variables within a production or manufacturing area through a device that measures a physical quantity such as flow, temperature, level, remoteness, angle, or pressure. Instruments may be as simple as direct reading thermometers or may be complex multi-variable process analyzers. Control Valve Characteristics Trainer: Control Valve trainer comprises of globe type control valve (½”) with diaphragm type Pneumatic actuator. The control valve is of linear / equal % type. The setup comprises of water pump with necessary supply-pipe, I to P converter, air regulator fitted on a table top powder covered metal frame. Digital 4–20mA variable current source is provided to control the I/P converter. Rota meter is delivered to measure the flow rate at which changes as per the valve opening. Pressure to Current Measurement Trainer: Pressure to Current (P to I) Trainer: This setup comprises of pressure chamber fitted on a base board. A pressure transducer and bourdon burden gauge are fitted to the chamber. Ordinal pressure indicator with transmitter output is provided to display the pressure sensor by the pressure transducer. Spreader output 4 to 20mA can be measured by a current meter. Foot air pump is given that to build the pressure.
