Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. This course is designed to provide delegates with a detailed and up-todate overview of fired heaters, air coolers, heat exchangers, pumps, compressors, crude desalter, pressure vessels & valves operations. It covers the objective and equipment layout of process equipment; developing of static and dynamic head in the operating volume of pumps for efficiency and control operation; the affinity laws as tools for efficient operation, pump auxiliaries, wear components, canned motor and magnetic drive pumps, flow pumps, servicing and condition monitoring; the main features of various types of compressors; the compressors classification based on design and application; the types, styles and configurations of centrifugal and axial compressors; and the main elements of centrifugal compressor construction and efficiency. During this interactive course, participants will learn the compressor operation; the fin fan cooler including its types, operational efficiency and capacity control; the operation and troubleshooting of cooler; the heaters and their types, construction and operating parameters and inspection/testing requirements; the types and basic parts of furnaces; the fuel gas system of burners, gas burners, oil burners, flame impingement, draft and observations during normal operation; the heat exchangers, process vessels and valves; and the troubleshooting of different equipment and processes. link to course overview PDF
