The Instrumentation, Measurement and Control Technology program allows students to develop skills for the installation, maintenance, calibration and troubleshooting of systems used to measure and control the flow, level, temperature and pressure in automated industrial processes in the chemical, oil and gas industry. Courses combine technical theory, use of state of the art equipment, and hands-on experience necessary to work in industrial instrumentation fields across the state, and throughout the country, including chemical operations, upstream and downstream oil and gas.
Glenn Rinehart, Sales Engineer for Valtronics Solutions stated, “The evolution of classroom technology has changed immensely and it is with great pride that I have been able to be part of this forward momentum at BridgeValley Community & Technical College. Valtronics Solutions has graciously provided many pieces of equipment for student hands-on training and I have been lucky enough to provide instructional presentations to the students on gas sampling, sample system design and operations as requested. I will also be providing hands-on instruction on Gas Chromatograph (GC) operation and maintenance. This amazing opportunity came due the recent donation of a Daniel 570 GC by a local gas company and the commitment from Valtronics to refurbish and provide update dated electronics for the GC.”
The program of study supplies a course, GASM – 211 Natural Gas Quality Measurement I 3, which utilizes the equipment supplied by Valtronics. Students learn how to monitor natural gas for impurities using gas quality monitoring equipment. The in-depth curriculum covers components of natural gas and how if unprocessed, affect the quality of the natural gas; purpose, design, and standards associated with natural gas sampling as well as various sampling methods, mechanisms of sample. Students are introduced to the basics of natural gas chromatography and gas detection systems.
