A valve may be defined as any device that stops, starts, or changes the direction of magnitude of any fluid flow or its pressure. Management is becoming more and more aware of the importance of valves in industrial plants and processes. In the hydrocarbon and natural gas industries, valves represent about 8% of new plant capital expenditures and about 10% of the maintenance budget for replacement purchases. The price of valve failure and leakage increases as the cost of process fluids rises. There are different types and valve functions that may be meat in any plant; that is why valve technology has high potentials nowadays.



On completion delegates will be familiar with:

- Different types of valves, and their construction.

- Valve applications and functions.

- Valve sizing and estimates

- Cavitation and noise in valves

- Troubleshooting of the valves and their maintenance



Day 1:           

- Introduction to valves

    • Types of valves:
    • Gate valve,               
    • Globe valve,
    • Angle valve
    • Needle valve,
    • Butterfly valve,
    • Ball valve,
    • Plug valve and
    • Check valve.
    • Special service valve
    • Pressure safety valve (PSC)

Day 2:           

- Valves action:

    • Stop or isolation valves, which, when in full opened or closed position, denote the starting or stopping of a stream flow.
    • Throttling valves which control the flow of fluids by reducing it as required.
    • Regulating valves that operate according to changes in line pressure to automatically increase or decrease flows and keep the line pressure constant

Day 3:           

- Specialized valves:

    • Diaphragm valves.
    • Blow off valves.
    • Balance valves.
    • Diverting valves.
    • Pressure reducing valves.
    • Temperature regulating valves.
    • Various kinds of "overpressure" valves. (pressure safety valves PSV)
    • Hand control valve, knife valve, deluge valve, and blow down valve, slide valve .three way valve, four way valve, and automatic recirculation valve. All these valves are named as their service and shapes or actuators

Day 4:           

- Valves Operation & actuators

    • Pneumatically,
    • Hydraulically,
    • Electrically operated.

Day 5:           

- Factors affecting suitability and application of valves:

    • Fluid Properties
    • Valve Size
    • Valve Service
    • Fluid Friction Loss
    • Pressure and Temperature
    • Materials of Construction

- Valves maintenance



- It is important for engineers, technicians, operation and maintenance groups.
