UF-101 - Fisher Control Valve Engineering - Introduction + Advanced

UF-101 - Fisher Control Valve Engineering - Introduction + Advanced

This training is based on Emersons education courses 1300/1350 and will be performed in two steps for three days.

1300 Fisher Control Valve Engineering – Introduction.

Overview 
This course is for engineers and other personnel responsible for the selection, sizing, and application of control valves, actuators and positioners.

This 3-day course reviews design and operating principles of control valves, actuators, positioners and related accessories. It describes the sizing and selection methods for a broad variety of control valves assemblies. Students will solve several demonstration sizing and selection problems using Fisher Specification Manager software and published materials, plus participate in equipment demonstrations and hands-on workshops.

Students who take this course will be able to:

  • Select the proper valve characteristic for a given process
  • Choose suitable styles of control valves for an application
  • Select size of control valves and actuators
  • Select the best actuator for all applications
  • Properly apply positioners


Topics

  • Control valve selection: rotary/sliding stem
  • Actuator selection and sizing
  • Liquid valve sizing
  • Gas valve sizing
  • Positioners and transducers
  • Valve guidelines
  • Valve characteristics
  • Valve packing considerations


Audience 
This course is for engineers, technicians and others responsible for the selection, sizing, and application of control valves, actuators and control valve instrumentation.

Prerequisites
Some experience with industrial controls equipment including control valves and actuators would be helpful.

Delivery Options
This training is also available as a four-day distance training, Tuesday to Friday with instructor-led mornings.

 

1350 Fisher Control Valve Engineering – Advanced.

Overview
This course reviews advanced application-specific design and operating principles of control valve assemblies, instruments, and accessories installed in a variety of non-general service applications. Students will gain insight in sizing and selection methods utilized in selecting appropriate control valve assemblies, as they relate to advanced control topics.

Fisher Specification Manager software, combined with published reference materials, will be used to solve several advanced sizing and selection problems. Students will also have the opportunity to ask Emerson certified Fisher engineering instructors clarifying questions to firmly understand the advanced fluid mechanics covered in this course.

Students who take this course will be able to:

  • Properly apply knowledge learned from UF101/1300
  • Review basic sizing of control valves and build on the complexity of applications
  • Review basics of thermodynamics and how those concepts relate to the sizing model
  • Discuss key ideas involving cryogenic control valve assembly applications
  • Size and select control valves for two-phase flow of hydrocarbon mixtures and dissolved gas
  • Size and select actuators and pneumatic accessories for stroking speed requirements
  • Gain insight into instrument diagnostics and optimum loop performance
  • Learn the basics of steam conditioning processes and associated equipment


Topics

  • Cavitation and flashing
  • Noise
  • Basic thermodynamics
  • Cryogenic valves
  • Two-phase flow
  • Stroking speed
  • Steam conditioning
  • Control valve optimum loop performance
  • Control Valve Diagnostic Basics


Audience
This course is specifically tailored to technicians, engineers and others responsible for the proper selection, sizing, and application of control valve assemblies.

Prerequisites
Successful completion of UF-101/1300 is required. Familiarity with sizing, selection, and advanced application of control valves is strongly encouraged.

Delivery Options
This training is also available as a remote course.
