Why Choose this Training Course?

Grab the opportunity to attend an exciting Process Control Valves and Actuators training course that equips you with all the necessary knowledge to enter the world of valves and actuators. This training course is highly interactive, and is suitable for all delegates, regardless of their background. Whether you are part of the team purchasing the valves, or a key member involved in implementing maintenance activities, or a process control specialist, this is the one training course that you should not miss out on! Valves, actuators, associated equipment, process control using valves – this and much, much more are covered in 5 knowledge-filled days.

The training course focuses on applications and examples deemed to be relevant to your industry and is cognizant of your working environment. At least 50% of the training course is devoted to practical exercises and discussions, to keep attention spans at optimal levels.

This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:

  • Essentials of control valves
  • Actuators and associated valve equipment
  • Theoretical and practical sizing aspects
  • Selection, installation and maintenance essentials
  • Tuning and optimizing a process using control valves

What are the Goals?

By the end of this Process Control Valves & Actuators training course, participants should be able to:

  • Comprehend valve operation
  • Understand and appreciate assorted common valve types
  • Size and select the correct valve set (including actuators), suited to each specific application
  • Choose suitable positioners, based on prevailing conditions
  • Use multiple techniques to tune a valve-controlled process

Who is this Training Course for?

It is irrelevant whether delegate valve knowledge and experience ranges from novice to advanced. The training course starts from first principles, and builds up, with the emphasis on delegate participation. Instructor guidance is delivered on a personal level, and delegates are encouraged to ask as many questions as necessary.

This Process Control Valves & Actuators training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Instrumentation, electrical, mechanical, process and maintenance engineers, specialists and staff
  • Management
  • Design teams
  • Budgeting and financial staff
  • Team leaders, supervisors and foremen

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This training course starts off from basics and builds up to an advanced level, as far as control and using valves and actuators, are concerned. None-the-less, it is presented in such a way that even total novices will feel comfortable from the very beginning. No-one is left behind and the instructor takes pride in guiding all delegates along the way, with personal assistance, where required.

Delegates are encouraged to keep an open mind and to immerse themselves in all exercises and discussions, to ensure that maximum learning takes place. Preference will always be given to applications and examples that tie up with the working environment encountered by the delegates.
