This three-day course uses a hands-on approach for troubleshooting and correcting many common control valve problems. The class will be introduced to the practice of basic valve sizing and selection. Valve problems such as cavitation, flashing, and aerodynamic noise are also discussed as well as common solutions to these problems using different control valve trims and materials. Instrumentation topics are expanded from course 1400/1400V and 1700/1700V to include troubleshooting and advanced calibration for split-ranging, non-compatible signals, or using additional instruments such as a volume booster and trip valves. Loop performance issues due to stick-slip, high friction, and instrument operation are discussed.
