THIS COURSE WILL ONLY BE OFFERED AS A PRIVATE/IN-HOUSE SEMINAR IN 2017.
The "Advanced Slurry Pumping & Piping" training course arms attendees with key knowledge which is required for the design of slurry pipelines, in-plant slurry piping and slurry pumping systems.
This slurry training course is conducted over two days and the attendee is exposed to slurry topics such as: slurry properties and their measurement; slurry flow curves; slurry piping and pipeline materials of construction (including liners); case studies; the design of piping for settling slurries; the design of piping for non-settling, non-Newtonian slurries; scale-up methods; slurry testing; selecting slurry pumps; de-rating slurry pumps for settling and non-settling slurries; frothing slurries; centrifugal slurry pumps; and positive displacement slurry pumps etc.
Because of the slurry topics presented as well as some aspects of their theoretical basis, this slurry training seminar is classed as an "advanced" seminar as a higher level of understanding of the basic principles of hydraulics theory and undergraduate level engineering mathematics is required. Anyone who has a degree or diploma in an engineering or science related field in-conjunction with basic background knowledge in the hydraulics of liquid flow should be well placed to derive maximum benefit from this slurry course. Similarly, anyone who has previously attended KASA's "Liquid Piping System Fundamentals" seminar and/or KASA's "Pump Fundamentals" seminar should easily comprehend and enjoy the material presented in this slurry seminar.
This slurry training course has been designed for those who are directly responsible for the design of slurry piping, slurry pipelines and slurry pumping systems as well as those who are required to size, select and specify equipment such as slurry pumps (both centrifugal and PD), slurry instrumentation and slurry valves.
Please Note: KASA also run a customised, "fundamentals" level slurry course titled "Slurry Pumping and Piping Fundamentals". This slurry training course is only offered as a private/in-house seminar and combines key topics included in "Advanced Slurry Pumping and Piping", "Pump Fundamentals" and "Liquid Piping Systems Fundamentals" into a three or four day on-site slurry course depending on your training needs.
