Why Choose this Training Course?
Why Choose this Course?
The seminar will introduce delegates to the different types of pumps and their associated terminology. Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings are discussed.
The application of the different types of pumps are considered along with their suitability for different operational duties. Pump operation, troubleshooting and maintenance are dealt with in depth.
The course will feature:
Enable delegates to optimise the operation and maintenance of different types of pumps.
Give delegates the confidence to carry out failure analyses on pumps thereby avoiding repetitive failures.
Give the delegates the ability to quickly and efficiently trouble shoot pumping machinery problems.
