Course description

This workshop provides a total in-depth insight into valve and actuator technology, covering: control valves, check valves, shut-off valves, solenoid valves, and pressure relief valves. A methodology is presented to ensure the optimum selection of size, choice of body and trim materials, components, and ancillaries. Whilst studying both liquid and gas valve sizing, delegates will also learn the correct procedures for calculating the spring 'wind-up' or 'bench set'. Maintenance issues also include: testing for dead-band/hysteresis, stick-slip, and non-linearity; on-line diagnostics; and signature analysis. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn through active participation using exercises, questionnaires, and practical sessions covering: systems choice; basic sizing calculations; computer-based sizing; and maintenance diagnostics.
