A complete understanding of the valve sizing procedure for any flow conditions likely to be found in a process plant

4.6/5

## Sizing valves and control valves for the process industry

### What you’ll learn

Be more innovative in your solutions to valve and control valve problems
Have an organized approach to the procedure of valve sizing in accordance with the ANSI & ISA recommendations
Be able to size valves for any flow conditions likely to be found in a process plant
Have a general notion about the confidence to be placed in the sizing result conclusions

### Requirements

The student who will gain the most from this course will come equipped with some knowledge of fluid systems and an acquaintance with process valves. For these reasons, we strongly recommend that prior to taking the present course, you attend first our courses :
1. Valves : Principles, Operation & Design
2. Flow of fluids through piping systems, fittings, valves and pumps
3. Designing piping systems : Pipe, fittings, flanges and valves
Please note that the mathematics in this course is undemanding. All the work can be done with a hand-held calculator with powers, roots and log functions.
To further help you in this task, the course is accompanied with a Valve Sizing Spreadsheet. The Valve sizing spreadsheet will help you perform all the calculations that we will discuss further ahead in the course. It has all the sizing equations, numerical constants and other parameters built right into it.
We assume that Microsoft Excel is installed on your computer and that you have basic knowledge of using Excel.
