Calibration: process control meets reliability

Available on Demand Until April 26, 2019

Duration: 60 Minutes

No matter how exotic your control system is, it is only as good as the data you get from your process instrumentation. Still, most power plants have not optimized their calibration processes. Typically, they calibrate too often or not enough, or follow long-established calibration procedures that have not evolved with the changing workforce and technology—any of which can compromise plant safety and reliability.
During this webinar, experts will discuss the importance of calibration to process control and define the critical components to a sound calibration program including traceability, uncertainty, intervals and tolerances. Join this webinar to learn best practices for establishing and managing an efficient calibration program and watch a live demonstration of how to effectively perform and document a calibration in a power plant.

What the viewers will learn: 
  • Criticality of calibration
  • Tolerances
  • Intervals
  • Uncertainty
  • Calibration automation
  • Documenting calibration
