Course Description

Valves and Pressure Relieving Devices plays a vital role in assuring plant integrity and safe operation by avoid exposure of plant equipment to un-safe actions and excess pressure for which they are not designed and not supposed to hold that pressure.

This course will provide the highest quality and brand independent information, giving plant management assurance that they have the skilled people they need to maximize asset value. Instructor-led training in different levels and tailored solutions for the specific application of the valves.

Course Objectives

  • Exploring types of PRVs 
  • Explaining procedure for calibration of PRVs
  • Reviewing the history of valves
  • Learning valve pipe connections

Course Overview

  • Briefly type of valves and Pressure Relieving devices
  • Difference between type of valves and PRVs, PSVs, VPSVs and rupture discs
  • Very important - Testing criteria and acceptance criteria in terms of re-seat and pop-up. Normally in the industry people are only worried about pop-up and not very much worried about re-seat which is most important factor in considering reliable and continuous operation of the equipment.
  • Brief introduction regarding relevant API standards
