Course Description

Control valves are imperative elements in any system where fluid flow must be monitored and manipulated. A complete control valve is made of the valve itself, an actuator, and a valve control device when necessary. The actuator is what provides the required force to cause the closing part of the valve to move.  The valve also controls devices to keep the valves in the proper operating conditions; they can ensure appropriate position, interpret signals, and manipulate responses. This course provides an overview of control valve with emphasis on the sizing and selection. Selection of the proper valve involves a thorough knowledge of the process for which it will be used.
