Maximum efficiency, reliability, and longevity of pumps, compressors, and their vital mechanical elements such as seals and bearings and others, are of great concern to engineers in many industries. These objectives can only be achieved by understanding the performance characteristics, selection criteria and sizing calculations, of these machines. Once the potential operational problems are identified based on condition monitoring techniques, the predictive maintenance approach can be followed and the corresponding repair techniques implemented.
This intensive 3-day training course on Pumps and Compressors is intended for those who use this equipment on regular basis and encounter problems in regular operation. The course will cover various technical details related to the design, operation and performance characteristics of pumps and compressors, including vibration analysis. The focus in the course will be on the operation problem solving by applying root cause analysis, which is followed by predictive maintenance procedures and repair and replacement techniques. Practical examples and workshop exercises will be utilized throughout the training course to emphasize the key learning points.
