Discover the major types of valves used in the process industry
Learn their components, their function & their operation
Have the opportunity to dismantle many valves and assemble them using 3D models, cross-sectional views and 3D animations
You will learn how control valves are used to regulate the flow of a fluid. Concepts such as head loss, pressure drop, valve coefficient "Cv", flow resistance, valve curves and cavitation will be presented
Finally, the course introduces you to valve symbols and representation in engineering drawings such as Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID's). Standards and conventions that apply to valves and their accessories will be discussed in details. You will learn how valve status and failure modes are depicted in engineering drawings.
