• This program teaches the basic principles, design & operation of centrifugal & positive displacement pumps. It also provides participants with the knowledge & skills required to install, operate, maintain & repair this type of equipment. The course discusses the construction & use of these pumps in practical situations
Mechanics Of Fluid • Nature of pressure- pressure & heat • Measurement of static fluids- use of static pressure • Nature of flow- rate of flow in vessels & in pumping – measurements of rate of flow
Centrifugal Pumps • Fundamentals of hydraulics applied to centrifugal pumps- centrifugal force • Pump design- pump parts- priming • Cavitation – start up & shut down procedures • Troubleshooting- repair & maintenance
Positive Displacement Pumps • Fundamentals of hydraulics applied to positive displacement pumps • Pump rating- performance characteristics • Operation & maintenance • Reciprocating pumps- rotary pumps – construction details
