Training 1: Basic Training Safety Valves

Your entry into extensive safety valve know-how! The training offers the theoretical basics of safety valve technology: Overpressure protection, valve types and functions, regulatory principles and certification. You will learn the functional characteristics like set pressure, back pressure and inlet pressure loss. The function of safety valves is demonstrated live in the LESER Chatroom. This training is the basis for plant engineering or customer consulting with current knowledge in overpressure protection.


This training is targeted at operations and project engineers, product and project managers, designers, plant engineers, experts in piping and valves, and LESER sales partners. 


The training will be held in German language
