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. Pumps and compressors are used extensively in the process industries. There are many types with widely varying configurations and applications. They represent a significant part of the capital and operating costs of most plants, and optimizing their selection, operation and maintenance are therefore, of major economic importance. The course deals with efficiencies, operating characteristics, reliability, maintenance and troubleshooting implications of pumps and compressors. The course will cover the operating principles of pumps and compressors, specifications, thermodynamics, effects of efficiency on operating costs, energy usage, and effect on plant costs, materials of construction, selection, troubleshooting and maintenance. The course will also cover plant run-length extension surveys, organizing for successful turnarounds and on-going reliability improvement, and preventive vs. predictive maintenance strategy decisions.The course will provide the participant with a basic as well as advanced pump and compressor technology knowledge, inventory required to successfully select, apply, operate, troubleshoot and maintain pumps and compressors. At the end of this course, participants will have gained a thorough understanding of the various types of pumps and compressors available to most industrial users, including sizing and application criteria, maintainability, reliability, vulnerability and troubleshooting issues. Participants will learn simple techniques and short-cut methods of machinery sizing and selection. This replaces tedious hand or other methods of calculation and will serve as a fast way to arrive at sensitivity or influence of parameter changes on equipment performance.
