Control Valve Engineering I

Course 1300      CEUs: 3.2

This course is for engineers, technicians and others responsible for the selection, sizing, and application of control valves, actuators and control valve instrumentation.


This 4-1/2 day course reviews design and operating principles of control valves, actuators, positioners and related accessories.  It describes the sizing and selection methods for a broad variety of control valves assemblies. Students will solve several demonstration sizing and selection problems using Fisher Specification Manager and published materials, plus participate in equipment demonstrations and hands-on workshops. Students who complete this course will:
•  select the proper valve characteristic for a   given process
•  choose suitable styles of control valves for  an application
•  size control valves and actuators
•  properly apply positioners and instruments


Some experience with industrial controls equipment including control valves and actuators would be helpful.
