Pumps – Application, Operation, Maintenance & Troubleshooting


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This training course will introduce participants to the different types of pumps and their associated terminology. Centrifugal and Positive-Displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings will all be discussed. The course Addresses factors that prevent pumps from achieving their optimum performance and life. Starting with an initial understanding of fluids and applications, the course also details specifications, design and correct pump type, selection, operating, troubleshooting and care of pumping machinery. 


TRAINING METHODOLOGY


The course will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, case studies and interactive hands-on work. Relevant case studies will be provided to illustrate the application of each tool in an operations environment. Audio Visual Aids will be demonstrated on Pump Assembly, Dismantling & Troubleshooting.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN


Upon completion of course the attendees will be able to 


Explain and understand pump terminology


Identify the various types of pumps


Understand pump characteristics and interpret pump curves


Understand Pump Types and Classification


Understand Criteria for Pump Selection


Perform a number of simple pump calculations


Confidently test and commission pump sets


Explain how Pumps are Constructed
