Training — Practical Pumps - Design, Operation and Maintenance for Centrifugal and Positive Displacement Pumps

16th September 2015 - 17th September 2015
Midrand, South Africa


This is a comprehensive, highly practical and interactive workshop. You will have an opportunity to discuss pump construction, design applications, operations and maintenance issues and be provided with the most up-to-date information and best practice in dealing with the subject. You will develop the skills and ability to recognise and solve pump problems in a structured and confident manner. YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO; • Identify the various types of centrifugal pumps • To use relevant pump terminology and understand their key applications • Understand pump characteristics and interpret pump curves • Perform a number of pump calculations • Describe ancillary equipment associated with pumping circuits • Draw up the correct operation, controls and procedures for operating pump systems • Understand more about safety with pump systems and the management of risk • Define pump reliability in terms of availability, criticality and wear characteristics • Understand pump efficiency in terms of capital costs, maintenance costs and life cycle costs • Understand the elements considered in selecting the right pump for a specific application • Tackle issues relating to mechanical shaft seals failures • Understand about pump drive options, alignment and pump drive sources • Confidently test and commission pump sets • Understand about condition monitoring of pumps and to optimise pump performance
