Tshwane Branch Technology Evening Invite
The Society for Automation, Instrumentation, Measurement and Control (SAIMC), Tshwane Branch invites members and parties with an interest in “Industrial Automation” to attend our upcoming Technical Evening:
TOPIC: PRIMARY FLOW ELEMENTS by
Mr. SAGADEVAN KANNIAPPEN of WIKA
Most of us are probably familiar with the good old Orifice Plate. However, there are other options, each with their own pros and cons. In what will be a fascinating presentation, Sagadevan will walk us through the justifications of Profit and Control Optimisation, to why flow accuracy is vital. In the process, he will take us through the options when it comes to Flow measurement, but will concentrate on the primary flow elements used in converting differential pressure measurement to flow. He will break these down into Restriction and Constriction elements, and discuss the relative advantages of each.
Sagadevan holds a B.Sc in Electrical Engineering, specializing in Instrumentation and Control systems. He is working on his MSc, and also holds qualifications in business and project management.
