Who should attend

This course is designed to benefit all levels of technical personnel in the oil and gas industry as well as in chemical and process industries but will greatly benefit technical personnel in charge of production, maintenance and operation engineers, operators, supervisors and engineering managers.

About the course

This course will introduce delegates to different types of pumps, compressors, turbines and associated equipment, such as bearings, seals, filters, separators, etc. The focus in the course will be on the start-up and operation of these machines and their optimal maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting techniques.

Likewise, efficient and trouble-free operation of pumps, compressors and turbines will be discussed in depth along with their ability to control the main operational parameters and will include emphasis on physical principles and clear technical reasoning.

The course will feature:

  • Principles of pump, compressor and turbine start up and operation
  • Best practices for maintenance and repair
  • Measurement and control of performance of these machines
  • Inspection and diagnosing the root cause of problems
  • Troubleshooting techniques for operational problems of pumps, compressors and turbines

Course Objectives

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

  • Understand different types of pumps, compressors and turbines.
  • Operate pumps, compressors and turbines close to the design efficiency.
  • Monitor pump compressor and turbine reliability and availability and cost effectiveness
  • Select the best operation and maintenance strategy
  • Troubleshoot pump, compressor and turbine problems
