Peter Smith, HNC (Mech)
This is a 2 hour course utilizing the current product catalogue of Velan Valves that covers API 6A & 6D Trunnion Mounted Ball Valves.
I have also included Appendix C, "Standards pertaining to Valves", from "The Valve Selection Handbook". This references the relevant standards. This is also available as a separate course.
The valves presented in this catalogue are designed to internationally recognised standards and the questions in the quiz are based on the technical data contained within this catalogue. There may be slight variations with other manufacturer's.
The Piping Engineer who is responsible for specifying, procuring, inspection and the installation of valves must be familiar with a manufacturer's catalogues and the way that the information is presented to potential customers. The Specifying Piping Engineer will have to review a Manufacturer's technical data when the technical evaluation is made on the valves, prior to the placement of the order.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
