Course Synopsis:

The course objective is to prepare the students with the necessary skills in the process industry. The course begins with introduction to process measurements involved in the process industries, followed by introduction to fundamental of industrial valves. Students then will be taught about ISA symbology, where students will be taught with the universal symbols used in process industry. Students then will be taught how to write the identification letter as well as the tag numbers for unit operation and piping. To complete the course, students will learn how to read and develop process flow diagram (PFD) and also piping and instrumentation diagram (P & ID).

Course Outcomes:
Ability to describe and discuss the function of different types of valves; describe and discuss the operational aspects of the valves.
Ability to discuss and compare the function and operational aspects of pumps, fans, blowers and compressors.
Ability to develop the process flow diagram by applying the ISA symbology.
Ability to develop the piping and instrumentation Diagram by applying the ISA symbology.
