What is " Instrumentation " ?

Instrumentation is the branch of science that deals with measurement and control in order to increase efficiency and safety in the workplace. An instrument is a device placed in the field , or in the control room to measure or manipulate flow , temperature , pressure  and other variables in a process. Instruments include but are not limited to valves, transmitters , flame detectors and analyzers. Instruments send either pneumatic or electronic signals to controllers which manipulate final control elements ( a valve ) in order to get the process to a set point , usually decided by an operator.


Instrumentation Engineering is the engineering specialization focused on the principle and operation of measuring instruments which are used in design and configuration of automated systems in electrical, pneumatic domains  etc. They typically work for industries with automated processes, such as chemical or manufacturing plants, with the goal of improving system productivity, reliability , safety , optimization and stability. To control the parameters in a process or in a particular system microprocessors , microcontrollers , PLCs etc are used. But their ultimate aim is to control the parameters of a system. Instrumentation technologists , technicians and mechanic specialize in troubleshooting and repairing instruments and instrumentation systems . This trade is so intertwined with electricians , pipefitters , power engineers , and engineering companies , that one can find him/herself in extremely diverse work situations. An over-arching term “ Instrument Fitter ” is  often used to describe people in this field , regardless of any specialization.

Control Pars Ltd.'s main goal is to supply instrumentation equipment in the right time & amount where ever they are needed in Asia and Middle East region.
