Description

This course is the complete guide to understanding control valves and the role they play in any process oriented system. In the lectures we introduce control valves, the various components that make up the valves and then we talk about the different types of control valves and the application of each. 

The course is made up of 11 short lectures, under 15 minutes each and guides you through all the concepts and methodologies that are needed to understand how to apply control valves to you process system. 

Anyone studying the basics of engineering or works in a process oriented industry (eg: Oil & Gas, Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper) should take this class, which explains the knowledge and application of using control valves in process systems. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who works in the oil & gas industry
  • Anyone who works in a process oriented industry (eg: Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper, etc..)
  • Anyone studying engineering basics and thermodynamics
  • Students studying chemical or process engineering and design
