The course starts with basic topics of valve and moves toward the advanced concept of the valve. Initial sections cover fundamentals, classification/categorization of valves and different components of the valves such as different types of the valve body, stem, bonnet, actuator and a whole lot of internal and external parts. Equipped with this knowledge you are ready to learn about different types of valve.
Core sections of the course cover all the main types of valve used in any process plant piping. You will learn about individual valve types, different types within that category, internal and external components and their specialty in detail. Gate, Globe, Check, Plug, Ball, Butterfly, Needle, Diaphragm and Pinch Valve.
You will also learn about Safety and Relief Valve that includes Pressure Safety Valve (PSV) and Pressure Vacuum Relief Valve (PVRV) and Specialty valve such as Through Conduit Gate Valve, pressure seal valve, knife gate valve and double block and bleed valve.
Overview of material, manufacturing process and standard & specification will fine tune your knowledge of valve.
In Quality Control and Inspection sections, you will learn about shell test, closer test, backseat test, pneumatic and hydro test, fire safe test, cryogenic test, pop-up test and visual, dimensional and marking requirements for individual valve types. You will also learn which standard to use for testing? What are the acceptance criteria? And lots of other details.
At the end of the course, your skill and knowledge will make you confident that you can give the lecture on the valve at your workplace and go for inspection and testing at valve manufacturer location even if have not seen the valve earlier.
