Course #1300

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

Overview

This 3-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

Prerequisites

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