VALVE TECHNOLOGY TRAINING AT MIR VALVE PLANT FOR SHELL ENGINEERS

Following a skill pool session we participated in at Shell KL, the customer requested a more comprehensive training for their team. We are very delighted to have hosted Shell Malaysia Engineering team to attend two-day VALVE TECHNOLOGY TRAINING at our HQ and Plant in Shah Alam, Malaysia. The team included 21 participants from Sarawak Shell Berhad, Sabah Shell Petroleum Co and Shell Kuala Lumpur.

 

The engineers learnt more about ball valve types, calculations, codes, standards and specifications, valve parts and functions,  seat design technology, sealing, coating systems and overlay, actuation and torques, material specifications and testing. The training included also a plant tour and familiarization with the manufacturing practices as well as common project issues and cost saving.

 

MIR VALVE welcomes customers and engineers for training and familiarization with the valve technology and manufacturing processes, we believe such exchanges can be only beneficial for the understanding of challenges on both ends when coming to project specifications. Being a local manufacturer, this is of great advantage for the Malaysian customers, as it does not involve complex logistics, they can easily reach our location for such trainings.
