At the end of this training, the participant will be able to identify components and correct procedures, describe functions and purpose, and troubleshoot as it relates to basic principles of density, specific gravity, and pressure of liquids and gases; identify and understand the use of manometers, the concept of force per unit area, hydrostatic pressure, pounds per square foot, pounds per square inch, feet of liquid; identify types of manometers; read manometer scales, U-tube and inclined tube, differential pressure, density and specific gravity, manometer liquids, well-type manometers, barometers; and understand the care, installation and operation of manometers.
At the completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Describe basic principles of density, specific gravity, and pressure of liquids and gases
- Identify U-tube, well-type and inclined tube manometers, liquids, scales, and their proper use
- Solve problems using hydrostatic pressure, pounds per square foot and inch, feet of liquid
- Explain density and specific gravity
- Demonstrate this knowledge on a fill-in-the blank final exam
Registration for this course entitles the student to course support from SkillWorks. After passing the final exam the registered student will also receive an official Continuing Education Course Certificate of Completion that will be accepted by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) and Board of Registration of Operators of Drinking Water Supply Facilities for operator certification renewal for the licenses listed in the table of course details above.
