About the course

A safety or safety relief valve can be considered the most important single safety device on a boiler, piping, pipeline or pressure vessel. If it fails to function in the manner for which it was intended and an overpressure condition develops, the result could be catastrophic. Like all mechanical devices, pressure relief valves require periodic maintenance and repair. To properly carry out repairs, it is essential that the work be done by trained personnel under controlled conditions, using proper parts and procedures.

This course covers all areas of pressure relief valves, including inspection, repair, operation and assembly. This course provides the best understanding of what is involved in the repair of pressure relief valves, all areas of pressure relief valves, including inspection, repair, and assembly. While not hands-on training, this course provides a better understanding of what is involved in the repair of pressure relief valves.
