Objective

The course will introduce participants to the different types of pumps and valves and their associated terminology. Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings will all be discussed. Valves for isolation and valves for control will be addressed. The application of the different types of pumps and valves will be discussed along with their suitability for different operational duties. Operation, troubleshooting and maintenance will be dealt with in depth. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able

  • To optimise the operation and maintenance of different types of pumps
  • To have confidence to carry out failure analyses on pumps thereby avoiding repetitive failures
  • Allow tighter control of maintenance budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service
