The Function of Ball Valves Used in the Oil & Gas Industry

Peter Smith, HNC (Mech)

This is a one-hour course utilizing an extract from my book "The Valve Selection Handbook", published by Elsevier and now in it's 5th Edition. The extract, on Ball Valves, is chosen from Chapter 3, - "Manual Valves" pages 108 to 119.

Also included is Appendix C, "Standards pertaining to Valves", from "The Valve Selection Handbook". This references the relevant standards. This is also available as a separate course.

It is essential that the individuals who are responsible for specifying, procuring, inspection and the installation are familiar with the functions of the Ball Valves that they will come across in the Oil & Gas Industry.

Each Ball Valve specified for the Oil & Gas Industry, will be covered by several standards, that deal with design type, construction, dimensions, end type, inspection, testing and numerous other characteristics.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
