Designed to build basic valve awareness, this introductory course is suitable for those who have no prior knowledge or who have a basic appreciation of the primary valve types.
Course delivery can be tailored to suit any audience, including office-based personnel and those that are new to the industry.
Entirely classroom based; 3D modelling and an extensive selection of cut-away training valves are used to aid visualisation and understanding of valves and their main components.
The course looks at the following valve types:
- Pressure Safety Valves
- Plug Valves
- Ball Valves
- Control Valves
- Gate Valves
- Butterfly Valves
- Check Valves
- Globe Valves
- Double Block and Bleed Valves
- Diaphragm Valves
- Needle Valves
- Choke Valves
Training also provides a basic appreciation of the following areas:
- Flow manipulation
- Common valve defects
- Hydrocarbon releases
Following training, delegates will have the necessary knowledge to identify the primary valve types, operators and the principals of their selection. A heightened awareness of the potential failures that can lead to hazardous situations will be gained.
Who Should Attend
The course provides a good basis for training personnel who are new to the oil and gas industry, including those who will be working in hands-on roles. Office-based personnel looking to gain a basic valve awareness; including administrators, buyers and technical assistants will also benefit from the training.
