All courses in New York have been cancelled .
BMC Training provides on 22 Aug 2021 Sizing, Selecting, and Applying Process Control Valves course [Electrical and Power Engineering Training] in New York,United States

Course Description

Extensive course materials provided contained useful information about valves/sizing and selection both theoretical and practical. You will gain a practical understanding of control valves, actuators, and positioner designs and their applications. The course also provides methods that can be used to identify specific valve problems and arrive at acceptable solutions within engineering tolerance

Course Objective

  • Compare various types of final control elements
  • Understand a typical valve operation in a control loop
  • Differentiate between various types of valves and the benefits of each
  • Compare rising stem to rotary style valves
  • Analyze a control system to determine control valve needs
  • Use ISA standards for control valve specification and selection
  • Size valves for any flow condition likely to be found in a process plant
  • Evaluate and select actuators for specific applications
  • Specify appropriate auxiliaries including positioners and I/P transducers
  • Design control valve installations that are safe and trouble-free
