Introduction to Valves

saVRee 5 hours and 4 minutes

Valves are used in every engineering industry on the planet. When you wash your hands, you open a valve. When you shower, you open a valve. Valves are required any time you want to start, stop, or control flows within a system.

Have you ever wondered: Why do we need so many different valve types; what kind of valve is correct for the x,y, and z applications; what are the pros and cons of each valve type; or why do valves have such weird names e.g. butterfly valve?

This engineering course will help you answer all these questions and many more! This course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning valve knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (oil & gas, mechanical engineering, HVAC, chemical engineering, power engineering etc.).

Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you exactly how valves and their components work. This course is packed with images, 2D animations, 3D animations and high-quality written content. Written content has been read aloud so that you can learn on the go without needing to watch the screen constantly.
