PA101 - Process Valves and Actuation Technology

PA101 - Process Valves and Actuation Technology

This course provides you with insights into process valve technology, including valve/drive selection based on materials and standards. It also gives you an understanding of valve control systems and focus on actuator selection and sizing for the correct application.


Practical exercises using industrial components and applications form an integral part of the training course.

 

Target group

Field-, process- and laboratory operators, process-engineering maintenance staff, designers, engineers, trainers, consultants

 

Contents

  • Design and function of process valves, taking international standardisation into account
  • Physical principles and material selection related to media and process valves
  • Testing and certification requirements of process valves (such as works test certificate)
  • Phenomena in fluid control like cavitation and water hammer and how to avoid it
  • Principles and selection of process valve actuation (manually, hydraulically, electrically and pneumatically)
  • Reading and interpreting process valve symbols
  • Influence of international regulations on the process valve selection (AWWA, API etc.)
  • Standards
  • Practical control exercises and application using PLC/ actuator/valve control

 

Outcomes

After completing this course, the participant can:
  • select, assemble and test complex process valve installations
  • maintain and troubleshoot complex process valve installations
  • identify and describe the construction, design features and operation of process valves
  • interpret technical specifications and data related to process valves and systems
  • identify and explain graphical symbols for process valves
  • perform simple calculations of pressure, flow and force and knows:
    • the role of process valve actuation (manually, hydraulically, electrically and pneumatically)
    • how to prevent cavitation and water hammer damage
    • innovative developments and current trends in process valve automation products and their applications
  • Size the correct actuator for the correct valve and application using:
    • Data sheets
    • Software tools
