Maintenance of Centrifugal Pumps Course

This course will provide an in-depth learning for Centrifugal pumps. Alongside the very comprehensive notes in the manual which will be supported by extensive deck of power-Point Presentations and a simulation video of Centrifugal pump including the major components, such as Mechanical and Dry Gas Seals, Bearings. The importance of Condition Based Maintenance will also be discussed in length and again using a simulation video. Each of these subjects will be concluded by a number Self-Assessment Questions.

To provide an in-depth knowledge of the essential operation and maintenance activities for Centrifugal Pumps. How to read and understand pump curves. A clear understanding to the Purpose, Use and Care of Centrifugal Pumps. It will give the participants a deeper knowledge of the equipment and the factors that affect its operation and also the essential and effective techniques for maintenance.

The training is for Operators, Maintenance/Maintainers Technicians and Engineers of Centrifugal pumps why they are used, how they work, what causes them to go wrong and what is necessary to keep them operating properly.
