Round Out Robust Educational Program
Manufacturers Association (VMA) has announced that it will be presenting two
informative educational sessions on the use of valves and actuators in the
chemical processing industry during the NEW CHEM SHOW, November 17-19 at the Javits
Convention Center in New York City.
both newcomers to the process industries as well as experienced engineers who
need a refresher course in valves and actuators, attendees will benefit from
the free 3-hour session that is divided into two parts:
101 – Starts with a broad overview of the valve industry and then narrows its
focus on key elements such as valve standards, basic piping information and
application issues that are critical to effective valve specification and
usage. Detailed discussions of the major valve types, including gate, globe,
check, ball, butterfly, plug, control and pressure relief, will provide
attendees with valuable knowledge that can be applied in their daily PVF work, whether
in sales, as a specifying engineer or an end-user.
101 – Begins with a description of the various actions, such as linear, rotary,
etc., that are employed to operate the valve types discussed in Valves 101.
Each actuator type (electric, pneumatic, hydraulic) is defined in expanded
detail to impart an understanding of their variations, characteristics and
relative technical matters. It provides sufficient information to educate users
about their options and to gain a firm understanding of how each actuator type may
apply to their specific needs.
confident the 2009 CHEM SHOW will be an excellent event for all of our members because
so many of the top executives and buyers from companies in the chemical process
industries will be in attendance,” said William Sandler, president of the VMA.
“We’re looking forward to working with show management to make the event the
most memorable in its history.”
