Free Online Course: Industrial Engineering - Control Valve Basics

This free online course Industrial Engineering - Control Valve Basics will give you all the information you need to know about valve types and can also be used as a refresher course. Every engineering process requires the ability to stop, start and regulate (throttle) flow. Valves are thus a fundamental part of any system that conveys gases, liquids or solids. Irrespective of your engineering background (oil and gas, chemical engineering, HVAC, mechanical engineering, automotive engineering etc.), this course will enrich your engineering career because valves are truly everywhere!


The course begins by explaining how valves are named, and what linear and rotary motion valves are. You'll learn about all the main components of valves, and how common valve types work (ball, butterfly, diaphragm, gate, globe, safety, relief, pinch etc.). You'll also learn about the advantages and disadvantages associated with each valve type.


Interactive 3D models are used extensively throughout the course to show you exactly how valves and their components work. The course is packed with 2D images, 2D animations and 3D animations. So start this free course today and learn about valve terminology, components, nomenclature and how valves work!
