This is the handout booklet for a two-day control valve application training seminar which has been very popular with those who use or specify control valves.
The handout pages are PowerPoint notes pages, consisting of color slide images, with notes that say essentially what I would say during the presentation.
The topics include subjects that are presented on the "Articles" page, but in much more detail (currently 320 pages) and represent my most current thinking on the topics.
Professional engineers in states that require that a licensee complete "Professional Development" hours to renew their licenses might find this handout suitable to use as professional development training. Many states do not require proof of completion, and others do. If you need a confirmation that you have used some or all of the sections in the handout, email me with a list of topics you wish to claim and demonstrate that you have actually studied the material by listing, for each topic, how much time you have spent on it and a list of five things that you learned from that topic. I will send you a certificate of completion. If you don't hear from me in two weeks, I may not be able to reply for some reason, perhaps illness of some sort as I am turning 83.
Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments.
Topics in this workshop are:
Introduction to Control Valves
Control Valve Sizing
Compressible Flow, Noise Terminology,
and Aerodynamic noise
Control Valve Material Considerations
Because this is a work in progress, I don't want the file circulating around the Internet. If you want to share this file with someone, please give them the URL to this web page instead of just giving them the file.
