Metrology Upgrading Programme - Gas Metrology-Gas standards preparation, sampling and analysis


Course Outline

There are many different principles and techniques for the analysis of gases. Physical factors such as gas flow, temperature and pressure have an influence on the measurement results, and suitable reference standards with proper traceability have to be used for calibration. These are important factors to be considered to ensure that suitable measurement equipment and method are used, and measurement results are accurate, traceable and reliable. This course aims to impart knowledge on the basics of proper gas measurements to industry participants, and raise their awareness on potential sources of errors in gas measurements.

The course outline is as follows:

1. Gas metrology and SI units
2. Compatibility of equipment used in gas measurements
3. Static methods for the preparations of gas standards

4. Dynamic methods for the preparations gas standards
5. Calculating the uncertainties
6. Methods of gas analysis
7. The importance of gas sampling methods

8. Uncertainty budget for gas analysis
9. Traceability, quality management system and issuance of certificates

The course will be useful for management and technical staff working in testing and calibration laboratories and gas industrial sectors.
