For Whom Intended

This course is intended for personnel involved in specifying, selecting, purchasing or using valves. Degreed engineers whose primary training is not in this field will benefit, as will technicians, quality assurance inspectors and manufacturing engineers. Course 825 will also benefit managers and supervisors in charge of these functions.

Brief Course Description

 The course introduces valves and valve components, and then discusses flow dynamics as related to valves.

The construction of valves and materials is covered, along with valve leakage. The course then covers in detail different types of valve available, with a description and discussion of how each type functions. This is followed by a general discussion of valve trim, characteristics, actuators and positioners.

A more detailed discussion of globe valves and gate valves covers valve variations and component options. The instructor covers these valves in application and use including the selection of valves, valve bodies, valve trim, valve actuator and valve packing.

Valves in a control system are covered next, including sizing and selection of valves. This is followed with a discussion of check valves and some variations available. Types of relief and safety valves are covered along with selection, sizing and standards.

The final section addresses codes and standards for valve safety and performance. ASME, European and Petroleum industry codes will be discussed.
