Classroom Module: An Introduction to Basic Hydraulics and Pump Types
- Basic Hydraulics – Terminology & concepts – and a review of basic pump types
- Pump Performance Curve and interactions with the System Head Curve
- Effect of operating away from the pump’s BEP, Cavitation, and NPSHR considerations • How wear affects flow and pressure
Hands-on Workshop Module: Inspect and Rebuild Between Bearings (BB) and End Suction (OH) pumps with an IMPEL overview
- Overview of design and construction of between bearings (BB) and end suction (OH) pumps
- Hands-on disassembly and assembly of common Balance of Plant (BoP) pumps
- Utilizing a representative BoP training pump, Goulds 3405, we review in depth the design and assembly of simple pumps. This class also acts as a steppingstone to acquaint the learners with the foundation for the high energy pump modules to follow later in the course.
Classroom Module: Pump Inspection and Rebuilding Guidelines and Techniques
- An overview of inspection procedures and practical advice for rebuilding your BoP pumps
Hands-on Workshop Module: High Energy Pumps (IR Model HMTA – BB3)
- Detailed review of components and their functions
- Centering of the rotor. Set and verify rotor running position, axial thrust, balance disk gap
- Review best practices and proper repair techniques with “tricks of the trade” information
- Basic pump operations best practices
- Q&A discussions encouraged throughout the segment
Shop Module: “Pump Failure Modes and Case Studies”
- Broad review of typical failure modes and areas of concentration during equipment health review
- Slide presentation of component failures geared to generate classroom participation and discussion of known issues and concerns relative to specific site “bad actors” and current plant projects
- Sharing of experience and “war stories” with focus on as-found conditions and what was or can be learned from these events
- Open forum to discuss learners’ prepared or spontaneous questions
Cost: $2,899 per person.
