THIS COURSE IS ONLY AVAILABLE AS AN IN-HOUSE (PRIVATE) SEMINAR IN 2018
"Pump Fundamentals" is a two day pump training course which has been specifically designed for those engineers and higher level technicians who are either new to the area of pumping equipment or who want to formalise their on-the-job learning. This pump seminar provides delegates with sufficient training to be able to size, select and trouble-shoot the most common pump types as well as effectively design pump systems from a consulting office or in a plant environment.
There are no pre-requisites required to attend this pump course. However, pump design calculations and worked example problems will be outlined during the pump training seminar so it is important that each delegate has a basic proficiency with engineering maths. Certainly anyone with a diploma or degree in an engineering or science related field should be fine. Higher level technicians from a trades-based background should also be well placed. However, our customised "Pump Basics" training course is better suited to trades-staff and plant operators as no design calculations are included.
A PDF Flyer is available for download (by clicking the button above) which gives more detailed information. However, in summary, the following pump training topics will be covered in this seminar: Basic Hydraulics Theory; Friction Losses in Pipes & Fittings; Pump Cavitation; Centrifugal Pumps; Common Positive Displacement Pumps; Pump Components; Reading Pump Curves; Motor & Engine Sizing for Pumps; Parallel & Series Operation; Specifying Pumps; Worked Example Problems; Pumping Viscous Fluids; Installation & Maintenance; Seals & Packing; Drive Types; Variable Speed Pumping; Introduction to Centrifugal Slurry Pumps.
From our previous experience, we have found that Graduate Engineers and Junior Engineers gain maximum benefit by attending the "Pump Fundamentals" training course and the "Liquid Piping Systems Fundamentals" Seminar either in the same week or within 12 months of each other. These two pump and piping training courses provide foundation information which enables maximum benefit to be obtained from KASA's other pump courses and piping courses.
