Advanced Valves is an entirely valve-focused course which builds on the basic knowledge from the Introduction to Valves course but offers a more comprehensive and detailed delve into the topic. It is suitable for those who wish to achieve a thorough understanding of the main technical issues from procurement, through manufacturing to operation and maintenance of industrial valves.

The course is focused on combining theory with the real world experiences of our trainer encompassing the design, manufacturing and operation of industrial valves. The course has now been expanded with selected ASME, EN & API design standards content.

This course will cover:
Day 1 - Valve basics, general background, terminology, pressure temperature ratings, end connections, marking, pressure testing
