ISA & BEAMEX WEBINAR:
ADVANCED CALIBRATION TECHNIQUES BASED ON LOOP TESTING

July 2019

While not a new concept, there are advanced calibration techniques based on loop testing. In some cases, it is best practice to perform individual instrument calibration to achieve maximum accuracy (e.g. custody transfer metering). However, there are viable methods where a loop can be tested end-to-end and if readings are within acceptable tolerances, there is no need to break into the loop for individual instrument testing.

Watch this webinar to learn how a common sense approach can minimize downtime and maximize technician efficiency while ensuring reliable control and maintaining a safe work environment.

ISA & BEAMEX WEBINAR:
UNCERTAINTY IN CALIBRATION

January 2019

Did you know you can calculate your confidence level in a measurement?
Join this webinar to understand how you can use statistics in measurement, AKA uncertainty analysis, to determine an appropriate uncertainty value, calibration intervals and tolerances without a PhD in mathematics. Essential components of uncertainty will be explained, and experts will discuss when traditional errors, like % of span are appropriate and what to use with digital technology and smart instruments.

ISA & BEAMEX WEBINAR:
CALIBRATION AND INSPECTIONS IN HAZARDOUS AREAS

August 2018

There are many aspects to consider before you enter a hazardous (Ex) area to perform calibrations or inspections, such as the rating of the area (zone or division) and the equipment you use. Attend this webinar to learn about the hazardous area classifications, important considerations and techniques to ensure compliance and safety, and see demonstrations of a calibration and inspection in a hazardous area.

POWER & BEAMEX WEBINAR:
CALIBRATION: PROCESS CONTROL MEETS RELIABILITY

APRIL 2018

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 discuss the importance of calibration to process control and define the critical components to a sound calibration program including traceability, uncertainty, intervals and tolerances. Watch this webinar to learn best practices for establishing and managing an efficient calibration program and see a demonstration of how to effectively perform and document a calibration in a power plant.

ISA & BEAMEX JOINT WEBINAR:
How to Document Safety Instrumented Systems and Tests

January 2018

Calibration professionals are very often asked to perform inspections on instrumentation. This recorded webinar reviews the best practices of inspecting, testing and documenting a SIS and explore how to apply these practices in the field to not only SIS, but also to simpler instruments, like valves.

How to avoid the most common mistakes in field calibration: Part 2

November 2017

During this webinar, experts dive deeper into the advanced topics of field calibration. Learn about the issues that arise with loop testing, installing and testing capillary seals, and more. Hands-on demonstrations will tackle these mistakes and show you what not to do in the field.

Topics:
• How often should a process instrument be calibrated?
• Issues with capillary seals
• Problems with control valves

ISA & BEAMEX JOINT WEBINAR:
How to avoid the most common mistakes in field calibration: Part 1

August 2017

Field process calibration isn’t just about getting the job done, it’s about getting the job done right. It’s cliché, but true. Instrument calibration requires the proper process, tools and parameters for each instrument application to ensure valid results. If one of the three are lacking, your results could have little validity.

Watch this webinar to see experts expose the most easy-to-make mistakes and how to avoid them, so you can be confident in your calibration results.

ISA & BEAMEX JOINT WEBINAR:
Calibration uncertainty and why technicians need to understand it

June 2017

Being aware of the uncertainty related to a measurement is a very fundamental concept and you should not make any measurements unless you are aware of the related uncertainty.

Watch this webinar to learn all about calibration uncertainty and why it is crucial to understand it. Experts will provide real-life application examples of how uncertainty effects calibration results.

ISA & BEAMEX JOINT WEBINAR:
Calibrating analytical instruments (part 1)

March 2017

This is the first of a series about maintaining analytical instrumentation. Insight into common applications and issues of analytical instrumentation as well best practices to calibrate will be explained. The webinar provides examples of how you document “one-sided” calibrations such as pH/ORP and gas sensors/analyzers. This approach can apply to other instrumentation as well, such as meters, DCS and PLC inputs.
