Control Valve Basics
This online engineering PDH video presentation discusses the basics of control valves and describes the terminology, components and the function of the different types of valves used in various engineering applications.
Every engineering process requires the ability to stop, start, and regulate (throttle) flow. Valves are thus a fundamental part of any system that conveys gases, liquids, or solids. Because of the diversity of the types of systems, the fluids used, and the environments in which valves operate, a vast array of valve types have been developed throughout the years, with each type of valve designed to meet specific needs. But what are valves? How do they work? And why do they have such weird names? This course will help you answer all of these questions.
This 2 PDH online video presentation is intended primarily for mechanical engineers, as well as engineers of different backgrounds who are interested in learning more about control valves, their primary components and the different types of valves used in various engineering applications.
This continuing education video presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the different types of valves, valve nomenclature and terminology
- Understanding the reason behind the names associated with valves
- Learning about linear and rotary valves
- Knowing the main components of the most common types of valves
- Learning how to use the correct valve for certain applications
- Familiarizing with pros and cons of each type of valve
