Valve Maintenance Training Programs

Preventative valve maintenance, when performed regularly by skilled individuals, can mean the difference between optimal operation of your facilities or pipeline and an unscheduled shutdown. Because every second of downtime means lost revenue, the ability to safely service valves that are inline and under pressure, without a shutdown, becomes essential to any operator whose goal is to run their facility as safely, efficiently and profitably as possible.

ValvePro is a training program designed to help students acquire advanced knowledge of valve components and functions, and to practice hands-on skills to properly maintain valves and increase overall pipeline integrity. ValvePro graduates will gain the knowledge and skill set to increase valve life span, reduce fugitive emissions and optimize efficiency at their facility. They
will also benefit from enhancing their awareness of potentially hazardous situations and improving work practices.

PETEX and Sealweld working together

The University of Texas – Petroleum Extension Service (PETEX) and Sealweld Corporation have joined forces to provide the most comprehensive valve maintenance training available today. ValvePro® has, to date, certified hundreds of students from over a dozen countries worldwide.

PETEX has been training companies and individuals since 1944. Headquartered at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus north of the main university campus, PETEX develops, produces, and delivers technical and non-technical training courses, publications, and audiovisual aids for the oil and gas industry.

Sealweld has been servicing valves inline and under pressure, and educating clients how to do so safely and efficiently for over forty years. When it comes to valve care training and products, Sealweld not only wrote the book, but several of them.
