Get Started

Every engineering process requires the ability to stop, start, and regulate (throttle) flow. Valves are thus a fundamental part of any system that conveys gases, liquids, or solids. But what are valves?  How do they work? And why do they have such weird names e.g. butterfly valve?

This course will help you answer all of these questions and many more! You will learn:

  • How valves are named.
  • What linear and rotary motion valves are.
  • All of a valve’s main components.
  • How common valve types work (ball, butterfly, diaphragm, gate, globe, safety, relief, pinch, etc.).
  • How to choose the correct valve for a certain application.
  • How to identify valves visually.
  • Advantages and disadvantages associated with each valve type.

This course will give you all the information you need about each valve type and can also be used later as a refresher course. Irrespective of your engineering background (oil and gas, chemical engineering, HVAC, mechanical engineering, automotive engineering etc.), this course will enrich your engineering career…because valves are everywhere!

Why This Course?

Because saVRee has trained over 30,000 online students with an average course rating of 4.7/5.0. Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you exactly how valves and their components work.

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

Don’t waste more time reading this course description, check out the course overview video and the curriculum, and then make an informed decision.
saVRee lite courses are extracts taken from our main -and much longer- saVRee courses.
Hope to see you on the course!
