Advanced Pumps & Turbomachinery
6th November 2017 - 8th November 2017
The aim is to provide a satisfactory approach to the problems posed by pumps and turbomachinery and the means to solve them. This 3-day course will cover centrifugal and positive displacement pumps and associated turbomachinery, operations, maintenance, performance, applications and asset management. This is an interactive course including exercises and group discussions on all aspects covered by the course.
Starting with the fundamentals of thermodynamics and cycle design, in-depth methods to analyze and explore operational and maintenance procedures and maximize structural integrity and operating efficiency are presented. Piping hydraulics are covered in some depth to aid in troubleshooting centrifugal pump problems such as cavitation, driver power mismatch and capacity issues.
Creative technological solutions are needed to optimize operation and achieve, often conflcting goals. This course
teaches methods, which explain the wide range of parameters, as well as how to take advantage of the latest
Who Should Attend
This seminar is directed towards Supervisors, Team Leaders and Managers in Maintenance, Engineering and Production. The seminar will also benefi anyone who wishes to update themselves on turbomachinery, judge the suitability of them for their needs, and learn how to operate and maintain them for the benefit of their organisations.
