Control Valve & Actuators: Sizing, Selection and Application

 

INTRODUCTION:

It is claimed that the majority of control valves throughout the world have not been correctly sized and that large numbers operate on manual mode. Whether this is true or not is difficult to establish but we do know that the method of sizing and selecting a control valve for a specific application is generally not well understood. Although there are many factors that need to be taken into account the subject is not difficult to understand if dealt with in a logical manner.

 

Many maintenance problems result from people treating the symptoms of a problem rather than tackling the true cause – a basic understanding of the principles is all that is usually needed to solve the problem for good. This practical, hands-on workshop is designed to maximise knowledge retention and understanding. It provides an opportunity for participants to discuss with the presenter and others, specific problems and appropriate solutions. All delegates take away a detailed and comprehensive copy of the material presented; therefore minimal note taking is encouraged to ensure maximum delegate participation and attention.

 

OBJECTIVES:

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • What happens inside a control valve
  • The difference between cavitations and flashing
  • Choked Flow
  • Simple calculations to determine CV values
  • How to recognise severe service applications
  • The types of control valves and relative advantages
  • Different characteristics and specifying seat leakage rates
  • Size actuators for linear and rotary applications
  • Advantages of pneumatic, hydraulic and electric types
  • How to select materials for bodies, trims, packing boxes, and gaskets
  • Computer sizing programs
  • Failure modes for control valves
  • New approaches to troubleshooting

 

PRE-REQUISITES:

No specialist knowledge or skills are required – only a technical background so that there is an understanding for such factors as the difference between pressure and force. In fact this course is a good introduction to someone who has had no dealings with control valves in the past as well as an important refresher course for control valve specialists who benefit from the back–to-basics approach.

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Control Valve Specialists

·                 Plant Safety Specialists

·                  Instrumentation and control engineers and technicians

·                  Electrical engineers

·                  Project engineers

 

 

 

  • Process control engineers
  • Consulting engineers
  • Maintenance engineers, technicians and   planners
  • Systems engineers

 

 

TRAINING METHODOLOGY:

The latest educational methods and strategies will be employed. The course is designed to maximise delegate benefit from the outset. Questions are encouraged throughout. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss with the presenter and others, specific problems and appropriate solutions. All delegates take away a detailed and comprehensive copy of the material presented; therefore minimal note taking is encouraged to ensure maximum delegate participation and attention. Practical hands-on training ensures knowledge retention

 

TIMING:

Workshop timing is generally 8am registration and a prompt start at 8.30am with lunch at 12.30 and a finish no later than 5pm. There will be 15 minute morning and afternoon breaks. These can easily be varied for on-site presentations.
