Three New “Valve” Courses to Enter Production Soon

With all the excitement about our rapidly growing Environmental Health & Safety course library, which now contains nearly 50 titles with a dozen more slated for release shortly, it’s easy to forget about our Industrial Essentials course library.

We’re excited to announce that three completely new, 3D animated training courses covering fundamental aspects of valves are currently in production. The working titles are: Valve Basics, Valve Types, and Valves: Common Problems.

As with all our courses, these three “valve” training modules are thoroughly researched, present the material in a clear, orderly fashion, and incorporate our excellent 2D and 3D graphics to help explain difficult concepts.

The valve training courses are currently being written and are tentatively slated to include the following topics. We’d welcome any feedback you have—things to include and not include, tips for explaining difficult concepts—anything!

Valve Basics

  • Classifying valves by purpose, port size, motions and closing methods, and applications
  • Parts of a valve
  • Body materials
  • Face-to-face dimensions
  • End connections and welded connections
  • Valve coefficients
  • Stroke and flow characteristics
  • Pressure classes
  • Shutoff classes
  • Manual- and actuator-controlled valves

Valve Types

  • Gate valves
  • Globe valves
  • Needle valves
  • Pinch valves
  • Diaphragm valves
  • Plug valves
  • Ball valves
  • Butterfly valves
  • Check valves, including swing check valves, tilting disc check valves, lift check valves, piston check valves, and butterfly check valves
  • Pressure-relief valves
  • Reducing valves

Valves: Common Problems

  • Pressure drop
  • High pressure drops
  • Cavitation
  • Flashing
  • Choked flow
  • High velocities
  • Water-hammer effect
  • Turbulence
  • Noise

Don’t forget to write with your thoughts or suggestions, and be sure to look back for updates on production and release of this exciting addition to our industrial training/industrial safety training collection.

  1. There are three different types of ball valve. A full port ball valve offers no flow restriction, which means that when the ball valve is open, the liquid can flow freely through it. This is achieved by making the ball larger than the passage size, so that the hole bored through it can be the same size as the passage.
