Control Valves and Process Variability

This one hour webinar points out that about half the time when a process measurement is varying to the point where it affects process efficiency or product quality, the cause can be traced to a poorly performing control valve. The symptoms of excessive stiction and excessive dead band are discussed and recommended control valve performance criteria are presented.
Each participant will receive a certificate of completion in the mail.

Who should attend?

Technicians and engineers who need to trouble shoot problems caused by excessive process variability or who need to specify control valves that will be capable of controlling acceptably.


  • Control valves as a contributor to cycling loops
  • Control valve dynamic behavior: speed, resolution, dead band
  • Recommendation for control valve performance
