Overview of General Purpose Valves

A. Bhatia, B.E.

In almost any nuclear, chemical, or mechanical system, valves are used to regulate the flow of fluids in piping systems. There are a wide variety of valves developed for specific applications such as throttle flow, shut-off flow, reduce pressure, relieve pressure and prevent reverse flow. A basic understanding of the purpose, construction, function and principle of operation is essential for right selection of valve for your service.

This 3-hr course material is based entirely on US Department of Energy training materials (DOE-HDBK-1018/2-93, Mechanical Science, Vol. 2 of 2, Module 4).

The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
