of Pumping System Optimization

This is an excellent hands-on class for engineers and pump professionals. Practical how-to information is given by expert pump mechanics and millwrights. Reflecting today’s pump repair priorities, this class works in small groups on industry standard ANSI pumps. This class always sells out early and is offered twice this year due to its overwhelming popularity.

The successful operation of pumps starts with a quality installation and effective start-up!  Learn what to look for when inspecting an installation, and critical start-up procedures for most common rotating equipment.  See firsthand how piping and baseplate installation can impact pump alignment.  Attendees will also see a demonstration of how installation and operating conditions can have a major impact on pump performance and expected service life.

Register

This session is designed to provide process equipment professionals with a solid technical overview of pump system hydraulics, NPSH, efficiency and energy consumption.  From there, we will learn how to identify inefficiencies in pumping systems and understand proper application of variable speed technology to reduce energy costs and improve pump reliability.  Though not a prerequisite, this course is excellent preparation for many of our classes.

Register

This is your backstage pass to a one of a kind, truly unique learning opportunity.  In this course attendees will operate fully functional variable speed pumping systems for a side-by side investigation of centrifugal and positive displacement pump operation.  Participants will get hands-on, running VFDs and turning valves to explore the fundamentals of pump operation, and will work with our expert engineers to gain a deeper understanding NPSH and cavitation, efficiency, and optimization of pumping systems.  Due to small class size, these sessions will sell out early and are offered all day.

Rotating equipment reliability has entered the digital age.  Prepare for the future, where pumps and their components speak for themselves and allow fast diagnosis of not only what happened, but why.  This fast paced seminar will discuss the newest tools for economical real-time equipment health monitoring and collaborative analysis, as well as the important implications for maintenance and vibration analysis programs plant-wide.

Register

From foam to scum, grit to sludge cake, mannich polymer to chemical sumps, you’ll see real world, proven solutions reviewed with hands on disassembly and demonstrations of selected key equipment solutions. Bring your experiences and questions to this class and our pump experts will help solve your toughest pumping problems.
