    Valve Maintenance and Repair

    This course will provide the attendee with the knowledge necessary to understand and enhance their mechanical aptitude in the area of valve maintenance and repair.

    The purpose of this course will be  to develop in participants a working knowledge of various valves, as well as the different procedures and regulations associated with their maintenance and installation. With the completion of this course the participants will be equipped with the basic knowledge required to identify valves, the construction of valves, and the repair of valves and associated components.

    Technicians in the petroleum industry are required to have a comprehensive technical knowledge of valve maintenance and repair.  Technicians that participate in this training will be better equipped to repair and maintain these components, as well as increase the knowledge within a maintenance team.  This will increase the safe and efficient productivity of the mechanical systems.  With further on-job training and experience, each technician will be able to attend more advanced training, therefore enhancing their maintenance team’s capabilities and knowledge. 

    Day 1

    Identification and Construction

    • Materials and service ratings for valves
    • Terminology
    • Types of valves

    Day one of this course will focus on the identification and construction of valves.  Materials and service ratings will be discussed, along with basic valve terminology.  The majority of the day will revolve around identifying the principle types of valves and describing their purpose, design, components, operation, and application.  The specific valve types covered include gate, globe, ball and butterfly, check, temperature and pressure relief, pressure reducing, and float operated.

    Day 2


    • Procedures
    • Position, location, and accessibility
    • Joining methods

    On the second day participants, will learn about the installation of the various valves.  The day will cover procedures for position, location, and accessibility of the valves.  Joining methods will also be discussed.

    Day 3

    Maintenance and Repair

    • Types of control valves
    • Construction and operation
    • Care and maintenance

    The last day of this course will teach participants about the maintenance, repair, construction, and operation of valves.  Several types of valves will be covered on this day, including two-way, three-way, and actuated valves.  Disassembly, reassembly, replacement, re-packing, and the tools needed for the care and maintenance of valves will also be discussed.

    This course is mainly targeted to mechanical technicians working in the field as an introduction or refresher.  The course can also be applicable to employees working with equipment purchasing, procurement, storage, and job planning, as well as immediate supervisors to the working technicians.

    Persons attending this training should have an awareness of piping and piping system operations.
