Training Pump Selection, Operation and Troubleshooting

Pump Selection, Operation and Troubleshooting Training

Course Description

In every plant or production operation system, we find pumps. However, unlike bolts and nuts, neither industry nor production-operation management will put pumps in stock. It is NOT cost effective and is very uncommon practice to put a complete set of pump in the warehouse stock due to financial reasons. This training will provide a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of pump selection, installation, operation and maintenance program. The training will concentrate in centrifugal pump as they are the most common one used in the industries and day life.

Course Objectives

  • Refreshing the knowledge of the participants on fluid mechanic and pump characteristics
  • Understanding centrifugal-pump basic-system design, selection, operation, treatment and installation
  • Learning the critical symptoms of pump operation
