Presenter: John Tonkin
2020 sees John’s 50th year in engineering. Initially he had exposure to plant maintenance (steam, water, pneumatics, ash handling, boilers, turbines and pumping systems) and marine steam plant.A number of years in the selling, commissioning and trouble shooting of pumping systems…More



The control of fluid flow in pipelines is a complex issue. In this course delegates are taken through the attributes and applications of the more popular valve patterns in a pipe work system. The hydraulic concepts associated with the operation of these valve types will be included. The complex subject of control valves is introduced, with an overview of functions such as pressure sustaining, reduction, rate of flow control etc. Valve actuating mechanisms are also covered as these are becoming increasingly important in the overall operation of the reticulation system.


  • Piping Engineers and Designers
  • Mechanical Engineers
