Regulators Gas Control Conference
This 4-1/2 day conference demonstrates the fundamentals of natural gas regulators in gas pressure control. This course emphasizes natural gas distribution and also covers natural gas transmission. Students who complete this conference will be able to:
Evaluate the difference between direct-operated and pilot-operated regulators
Evaluate the different methods of overpressure protection
Properly size regulators and relief valves for natural gas applications
Troubleshoot a wide variety of regulator types
Self-Operated Regulator Fundamentals
Pilot-Operated Regulator Fundamentals
Two-Path vs. Unloading Style Pilots
Regulator Sizing and Selection
Overpressure Protection Methods
Monitor Methods and Sizing
Sizing and Selection of Relief Valves
Pressure Factor Measurement
Recommended Installation Practices
Aerodynamic Noise Theory, Treatment Methods and Technologies
A panel of Emerson marketing, engineering, and new product design engineers will discuss trends and needs in the Natural Gas market.
*The Regulator Olympics divides the class members into teams to participate in troubleshooting regulators—diagnosing district station problems, changing monitor modes, and working on commercial service regulators.
This conference is for those responsible for the selection, application, and operation of regulators in the natural gas industry.
At least one year's experience in the field of natural gas regulators is recommended.
