Valve Maintenance with DVC Calibration

8am to 4:30pm / 4.5 Days

The first two days of this 4.5 day course will cover sliding stem and rotary valves and actuators. Topics will include valve and actuator setup, maintenance, repair and troubleshooting. The balance will be focused on the installation and calibration of the DVC 2000 and 6000 series digital valve controllers using the 475 handheld communicator. An overview of AMS ValveLink Software will be included.

Students spend 50% of their time in hands-on workshops. Students who complete this course will be able to:

  • Correctly perform installation procedures
  • Perform basic troubleshooting
  • Change valve trim, gaskets and packing
  • Install and mount a digital valve controller onto a sliding stem actuator/valve and rotary actuator/valve
  • Configure and calibrate FIELDVUE® Instruments with the HART Model 475 communicator
  • Control Valve Terminology
  • Globe Valves/Packing
  • Actuators
  • Bench Set
  • Ball Valves / Butterfly Valves / Eccentric Disc Valves
  • Valve Characteristics
  • Control Valve Noise and Cavitation
  • Digital Valve Controller Theory of Operation
  • HART Communication Signal
  • FIELDVUE Instrument Installation
  • HART Model 475 Handheld Communicator
  • Instrument Configuration and Calibration
  • Instrument Troubleshooting
  • Control Loop Wiring Practices

Experience in instrument calibration and in control valve maintenance, installation, and operation would be helpful.
