What you'll learn
  • Identify and name valve components.
  • Identify common valve types.

  • Identify common valve actuators.

  • Know the characteristics and applications for different valve types.
  • Chose a suitable valve for any application.
  • And much much more!
Requirements
  • A desire to learn.
  • Some engineering knowledge is beneficial, but lessons are explained in depth to allow students to build their knowledge from the ground up.
  • Experience in an engineering field such as oil and gas, chemical engineering, power engineering, mechanical engineering etc. would be advantageous, but it is not required.
Description

Have you ever wondered?

  • Why do we need so many different valve types?

  • What kind of valve is correct for x,y,z application?

  • What are the pros and cons of each valve type?

  • Why do valves have weird names i.e. butterfly valve?


This engineering course will help you answer all these questions...and many more!


The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning valve knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (oil & gas, marine engineering, HVAC, chemical engineering, power engineering etc.), I can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of my other courses...).


Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you exactly how valves and their components work. I strongly recommend you checkout the free preview videos before signing-up because I know you won't be disappointed.


The course is packed with 2D images, 2D animations and 3D animations.


Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.

I have also posted a FREE Valve App on Google Play and iTunes that will help you consolidate what you have learnt (search for 'saVRee valves').


Don't waste more time reading this course description, check-out the free preview videos and the curriculum, then make an informed decision. I hope to see you on the course!

Who this course is for:
  • This course would benefit anyone working in the engineering world...because valves are everywhere!
  • Particular benefit is for anyone in the oil & gas, HVAC, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering or power engineering industries.

+ Primer - Overview of Valve Types
1 lecture 12:03

If you don't buy this course, you should at least watch this video to get a good overview of what valves are, how they function and how valves get their names.


The idea with this lesson is that you can watch it now, absorb some of the content and then we will return to each valve and each topic during the course. The video is a primer and will give you a brief overview before we start looking at valves in detail. Don't worry if you feel slightly overwhelmed, we will discuss everything in detail later in the course.
