Introduction to the Selection, Installation, Commissioning and Maintenance of Fiscal Flow and Metering Equipment

THE WORKSHOP

The workshop on fiscal metering is for engineers and technicians who require a practical knowledge of selection, installation and commissioning of fiscal metering.

A clear understanding of fundamentals and concepts of fiscal metering and its commercial implications is an important factor in an efficient implementation of fiscal metering system. You can only achieve excellent and reliable fiscal metering when your field instrumentation provides the correct information.

It is for those primarily involved in achieving effective results for the industrial processes they are responsible for. This would involve the design, specification and implementation of control and measurement equipment. The workshop focuses on practical applications, with special attention to installation considerations and application limitations when selecting or installing different measurement or control instruments for fiscal metering.
