Working with Basic Valves is a 6 module correspondence course  that is designed to be completed in about 25 hours over a three month period.

It covers the basics of what a valve is and what materials are used.

There is an online quiz at the end of each module and an exam at the end of the course with a pass mark of 50%.

Module 1 - What is a valve?

  • Sizes
  • End Connections
  • Valve components
  • Methods of Operation
  • Terminology

Module 2 - Choosing the Right Valve for the Job

  • Materials
    • Plastics
    • Rubbers
    • Metals
  • Trim Materials
  • Corrosion

Module 3 - Linear valves

A detailed discussion of the design, characteristics and application of the Gate, Flexible wedge, Parallel slide, Knife gate, Penstock, Globe.

Module 4 - Rotary valves

A detailed discussion of the design, characteristics and application of the Plug (lubricated and non-lubricated) Ball and Butterfly valves.

Module 5 - Flexible movement valves

A detailed discussion of the design, characteristics and application of the pinch and diaphragm valves.

Module 6 - Other valves

  • Air valves
  • Sleeve Valves
  • Needle valves
  • Bonneted gate valves
  • Penstock valves
  • Radial Gate valves
  • Self regulating valves
  • Glossary of valve terminology
Who should attend:
  • Anyone who deals with valves
  • Maintenance Foreman and Mechanics
  • Valve Salesman
  • Internal valve sales people
  • Project Engineers
  • Buyers
Pre-Requisites:
No specialist knowledge or skills are required - only a technical background so that there is an understanding for such factors as the difference between pressure and force.
This course is a good introduction to someone who has had no dealings with valves in the past as well as an important refresher course for anyone who would benefit from the back-to-basic approach.
Training methodology:
Each delegate will work on his own although ideally small groups should meet regularly to discuss the content of each module and share ideas. As the module is complete there are self evaluation questions to be completed.
