Course 8000 — Gas Control Conference

(3.2 CEUs)


This 4- ½ day conference demonstrates the fundamentals of natural gas regulators in gas pressure control. This course also emphasizes natural gas distribution and also covers natural gas transmission. Students who complete this course shall 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 topics

Topics Covered:

  • Self-Operated Regulators
  • Pilot-Operated Regulators
  • Two-Path vs Unloading Style Pilots
  • Regulator sizing and selection
  • Overpressure protection methods
  • Monitor methods and sizing
  • Sizing and selection of really felt
  • Pressure factor management
  • Troubleshooting regulators
  • Failure analysis
  • Recommended installation practices
  • Aerodynamic noise theory, treatment methods and technologies
  • Regulator Olympics- 3 troubleshooting challenges


At least one year’s field experience of natural gas regulators is recommended.
