Control Valves

Course Details

The one day Control Valves course is largely workshop based, emphasizing the main causes of cavitation, flashing and erosion in Control Valves. The course is intended for those who already have some working knowledge of Control Valves but are looking to heighten their awareness.

Delegates will gain an understanding of how control valves function, the ways in which flow conditions can affect internal components and pressure recovery.

Hands-on training allows delegates to study a range of plug and trim materials and examine how internal components can be affected by flow conditions.

Attendees will appreciate the consequences of Control Valve malfunction and will gain an understanding on how to recognize early indications of any imminent problems.
