Industrial Instrumentation Mechanic

By , May 5, 2014

Industrial Instrumentation Mechanics install, repair, maintain, and adjust instruments used to measure and control industrial processes such as pulp and paper manufacturing and petrochemical production. They diagnose faults and perform preventative maintenance by inspecting and testing the instruments and systems in use. These types of instruments are typically used for controlling factors such as: flow of gases or liquids; temperature of materials or stages of a process; pressure maintained during a process, or level of a material used or created during a process.
