Advanced Valve Technology (Design, Selection, Installation, Applications, Inspection, Maintenance & Troubleshooting)

COURSE DESCRIPTION A valve may be defined as any device that stops, starts, or changes the direction of magnitude of any fluid flow or its pressure. Management is becoming more and more aware of the importance of valves in industrial plants and processes. In the hydrocarbon and natural gas industries, valves represent about 8% of new plant capital expenditures and about 10% of the maintenance budget for replacement purchases. The price of valve failure and leakage increases as the cost of process fluids rises. There are different types and valve functions that may be meat in any plant; that is why valve technology has high potentials nowadays. On completion delegates will be familiar with: - Different types of valves, and their construction. - Valve applications and functions. - Valve sizing and estimates - Cavitation and noise in valves - Troubleshooting of the valves and their maintenance PARTICIPANT - It is important for engineers, technicians, operation and maintenance groups. COURSE OUTLINE  - Introduction to valves Types of valves: Gate valve, Globe valve, ...
