As we continually strive to improve our training programme we have developed a brand new course, Advanced Valves.

1.Valve Basics, General Background, Terminology, Pressure Temperature Ratings, End Connections, Marking, Pressure Testing
2.Design requirements of pressure envelope, body, bonnet (cover), body bonnet bolting & gasket, gland seal, operating mechanism
3.Materials of construction for pressure envelope, trim, material manufacturing
4.Corrosion mechanisms and NACE
5.Production Testing, inspection & material certificates
