This course has been design to show the basic types of Valves operate such as gate, globe, plug, ball, butterfly, check and relief valves and how they are configured for their many applications. It will be shown how valves should be specified and selected.
In light of the many liability cases held throughout the world, selecting the proper valve can have major consequences for a company's safety, economy and viability.
This course presents a practical approach to valve selection for the function, Servicing, sizing, installation, repair, overhaul, upgrading and modifications of these components.
Valves usually appear to be simple in form and operation, such as those of a manual Off-On Valve, Check Valve, or the Fixed Valve type such as an Orifice, Blind, etc. You will learn how components such as Safety and Relief Valves can become highly complicated and dangerous.
The course is constructed for three different groups, i.e., Valve Selection & Specification, valves end connection, Valve Manufacturing & Maintenance, and Valve Design & Application Theory, it is always difficult to meet all the objectives of anyone group due to the diverse and completely different backgrounds in both education and experience.


Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:-

  • Demonstrate and apply good working knowledge on the selection, installation, upgrading, inspection & troubleshooting of valves
  • Apply the proper steps, techniques and practices related to the maintenance, repair, sizing and selection of valves.
  • Apply the principles of pressure, temperature, flow and fluid mechanics on the design and use of valves



This course is intended for Maintenance Engineers, Application Engineers, Inspection Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Under-Development Engineers, Elect/Electronics Engineers, Production Engineers, and the new Valve Designers. Also this Course is essential for Supervisors, Foremen and Technicians.
