Course Description

Ever wondered: - Why do we need so many different valve types?
- What kind of valve is correct for x,y,z application?
- What are the pros and cons of each valve type?
- Why do valves have weird names i.e. butterfly valve?

This engineering course will help you answer all these questions...and many more! The 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 (HVAC, power engineering, oil and gas, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering etc.).

Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you exactly how valves and their components work.

The course is packed with images, 2D animations, interactive 3D models and 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.
