Instrumentation Information 

The use or application of instruments as for observation, measurement, or control. 

What is meant by instrumentation in engineering?

Instrumentation engineering is the engineering specialization focused on the principle and operation of measuring instruments that are used in design and configuration of automated systems in areas such as electrical and pneumatic domains, and the control of quantities being measured.Instrumentation engineering focuses on control processes that use sensors as an input. This field of engineering can be concerned with equipment processes using sensors to observe many types of variables including pressure, pH, voltage, temperature and many more. The Instrumentation Engineer will design and develop new devices and enhance or redesign older devices used to control electronic or mechanical systems.

Level instrumentation includes a range of level measurement equipment including switches, controllers, transducers and radars. These instruments play a vital role in ensuring silos, tanks and vessels maintain levels that are within safe operating limits.

Instrumentation tubing is used to connect various pressure gauges, pressure switches, valves and flow monitors on industrial piping and ventilation systems. The most common materials tubing is made from are mild steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum and polymers.

Instrumentation Engineer Job description

Instrument grade is a purity description for a specialty gases product that is designed to be used on an analytical instrument, for example, “Instrument Grade Nitrogen 5.0“ indicates that the gas is nitrogen of purity is 99.999%, with total impurities below 10 ppm for the intended purpose of being used with analytical
