Control Valves & Actuators: Sizing & Installation

Control Valves & Actuators: Sizing & Installation is part four of the Control Valves & Actuators four-part training series.

Produced in conjunction with ISA — The Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA™) — the course teaches students the steps needed for determining control valve sizing and the various factors involved in actuator sizing. Students will also learn how to install and maintain control valves and how to verify that the selected actuator is appropriate for specific industrial needs.

Course objectives include:

  • Describe the factors to consider for correctly sizing a valve
  • Recognize what items are needed to determine proper valve sizing
  • Determine the proper control valve to be used for a liquid, gas, and vapor application
  • Describe the factors involved with actuator sizing, such as static force, valve leakage classification, and dynamic forces
  • Recognize the proper installation and maintenance procedures of a control valve.
