Control Valves & Actuators: Types & Design

Control Valves & Actuators: Types & Design is part two 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 how to determine which type of control valve is needed. Control valves come in limitless types, sizes, designs, and materials but basically fall in two distinct categories: linear motion and rotary motion. This course will help students evaluate the factors that determine which type of linear motion control valve to use and which type of rotary motion control valve to use.

Course objectives include:

  • Describe the functions, applications, and differences of linear motion control valves and rotary motion control valves
  • Describe the functions, applications, and differences of pneumatically operated actuators, electrically operated actuators, and rotary motion actuators
  • Describe the basic operation and function of the components of the control valve
  • Identify factors that affect control valve safety.
