Course Description

Course Overview

Industrial valves are one of the important pieces of capital equipment. Valves can be used in pressures from vacuum to over 13,000 psi or 897 bar and thus find wide application across domains from manufacturing to even construction. This module covers the domestic and industrial applications of valves, various components, working principles, and types of valves used in process industry.

 

Target Audience
