Control Valves & Actuators: Basics & Function

Control Valves & Actuators: Basics & Function is part one of the Control Valves & Actuators four-part training series.

Produced in conjunction with ISA — The Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA™) — the course teaches the basics of a control valve, a rotary valve, and an actuator as well as other components associated with the function and operation of these control elements.
