Rationale
In the present industrial scenario, role of the process instrumentation is becoming more important day by day. More advanced, precise and complex instrumentations are being employed in the industry. Diploma engineers should therefore be able to identify, classify, troubleshoot and maintain the different process instrumentation systems. Therefore, this course has been designed so that students will learn to build, test and wire the different types of process instrumentation required for processing plants mainly for the process parameter such as pressure, flow, speed, humidity / moisture.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes. i. Observe and obtain the accurate reading of process instruments of Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity in a process plant.

ii. Correlate between Different types of pressure.
iii. Specify instrumentation for a given Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity application.
iv. Identify, describe and calibrate major instruments of Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity in a process plant.
v. Describe the purpose and function of process instrumentation of Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity in a process plant.
vi. Identify the main installed instruments of Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity in a process plant.
vii. Identify sub components of the main instruments of Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity in a process plant.
viii. Draw schematic diagram of process instrumentation for Pressure, flow, speed, moisture / Humidity in a process plant.
