Who should attend

This course is intended for engineers of all disciplines, managers, technicians, maintenance personnel and other technical individuals.

About the course

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the various types of reciprocating, rotary, and centrifugal pumps. This includes piston pumps, plunger pumps, rotary pumps, screw pumps, two- and three-lobe pumps, cam pumps, vane pumps, bellows-type metering pumps, diaphragm pumps, canned motor pumps, and centrifugal pumps. The characteristics, selection criteria, sizing calculations, sealing arrangements, common problems, repair techniques, as well as the preventive and predictive maintenance of these pumps are covered in detail.

This course is a MUST for those who use this equipment. It covers how pumps operate and provides the guidelines and rules that must be followed for their successful application.

This course provides the following for all types of pumps and bearings:

  • Basic Design
  • Specification
  • Selection Criteria
  • Sizing Calculations
  • Sealing Arrangements
  • Common Operational Problems
  • All Diagnostics, Troubleshooting, and Maintenance Required for this Equipment
  • Pump Drivers

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Maximize the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of all types of pumps
  • Size and select out of the various types of dynamic and positive displacement pumps using the performance characteristics and the selection criteria that you learn in this program
  • Carryout diagnostic testing and inspection of critical components with the knowledge of common failure modes of pumps by applying advanced fault detection techniques
  • Select bearings and lubrication, pump sealing arrangements, meet commissioning requirements, troubleshoot, provide predictive and preventive maintenance, enhance reliability, and reduce cost
  • Determine the maintenance required to minimize pump downtime and operating cost and maximize its efficiency, reliability, and useful life
  • Gain a thorough understanding of pump characteristics
  • Understand all the causes of failures in pumps
  • Determine all the design features that improve the efficiency and reliability of all pumps
  • Design different types of pumping systems
  • Gain a thorough understanding of the various types of sealing arrangements used in compressors
