On-Site Seminars
Send Our School to Your People
There's no better or more efficient way to handle routing pressure relief valve maintenance or possible repair than having your own people do the job on the spot, within your own plant. And there is no better way to train them for this vital function than having them attend a Farris Engineering, one-day, pressure relief valve maintenance seminar which can be held: 1. At your plant 2. On a date best suited to your operating schedule. The personnel you select to attend will be schooled in the function and practical operation of pressure relief valves and learn how to cope with both routine and unusual valve problems should they occur. At the seminar's conclusion, they will be capable of initiating proper valve maintenance procedures and operating practices, and will be prepared to act promptly and decisively if an emergency arises. As all training will be conducted by an expert with many years of both technical training and practical service experience, attendees are assured of effective in-depth instruction. Added to the obvious service advantages, your maintenance and quality assurance people will gain from these seminars are the following plus benefits:

Savings: You can save on travel and living expenses because your employees do not have to leave your plant. You pay one per diem fee no matter how many people attend the seminar (groups to 15 recommended).

Timing: You can schedule an on-site seminar whenever you want it, so your people can attend at a time that fits your organization's natural work cycles.

Focus:Being in-plant, the seminar can be focused on your specific maintenance problems and their solutions.

Motivation:Planning an on-site seminar is a productive way to reward your people and express your confidence in them, by offering additional job training.

The comprehensive pressure relief valve curricula presented during the training program deals with common problems and remedies. Included is a review of ASME Codes and specific service problems encountered in the petrochemical process, power, pulp and paper industries.

The first half of the program includes product introductions, fundamentals of operation and installation. This is followed by a series of "hands on" activities that will give your personnel a chance to actually disassemble, inspect, reassemble, and test a valve. All facets of pressure relief maintenance are covered including the correct procedure for lapping seats and disc. In all, no task that a valve technician must perform is overlooked. Upon completion of the course each student will have acquired a thorough education in the basics of pressure relief valve operation and repair.

On-Site Seminar Details: Rates include instructor's fee, transportation to your site and return, lodging, meals and out-of-pocket expenses.

If your shop has adequate testing equipment and should you so desire, the seminar can be extended for an additional half-day.

We also offer User Maintenance Seminars at our main plant in Brecksville, Ohio. Contact Farris Engineering for further information and dates. You may also view the training schedule by selecting the link in the right-hand menu.
