A Training Seminar by KASA Redberg.
Offline (In-Person) schedules for Brisbane and Perth, Australia.
In-House sessions are available upon request.
Pumps are found in all industries and come in all shapes and sizes. Decision makers operating in areas such as water treatment, minerals processing, oil and gas, utilities, metals processing, food and beverage and many more employ billions of dollars worth of pumping equipment to help achieve their objectives.
To ensure that you are achieving maximum performance from your pumping equipment, it is essential that you know the fundamentals. “Pump Fundamentals” is an intensive, practical and interactive two day seminar which focuses on the common types of pumps and how to select, install, troubleshoot and maintain them.
Who Should Attend:
Process, Design, Project and Consulting Engineers; Line Managers and Supervisors; Maintenance Technicians; Pump Sales Representatives; or anyone who needs to select, specify, commission, install and/or maintain pumping equipment.READ MORE
It is a requirement that each delegate has an understanding of mechanical components. A basic understanding (trade level or higher) engineering maths would also be a necessity. Ideally, each delegate should have a degree or diploma in a relevant technical field or a higher level mechanical trade qualification.
At the completion of this seminar, each delegate should be able to:
- Identify common pump types and their components
- Understand pump, associated component, hydraulics and slurry terminology
- Select the most appropriate pump type, make and model for an application
- Be competent in reading and using pump performance curves
- Understand cavitation and how to prevent it from occurring
- Specify the correct installation configuration for a particular pump type
- Install, commission, operate and maintain common pump types
- Troubleshoot pump problems
Training Seminar Materials:
All delegates receive:
- The “Pump Fundamentals” Training Manual – a reference manual comprising theory, worked example problems, tables , charts and illustrations etc based on the seminar outline. This manual has been designed to be a valuable future resource for the office, workshop, factory or plant.
- Certificate of Attendance – which states the number of hours of training and serves as documentary proof of attendance.
“Pump Fundamentals” is the first in a series of three pump and piping training seminars pitched at a “fundamentals level”. It provides a practical introduction to the world of pumps and their applications.
The two companion seminars to “Pump Fundamentals” deal with liquid and gas piping systems.
Plant Engineers, Project Managers and Process Engineers should consider undertaking all three of KASA’s “fundamentals level” training seminars to help aid their knowledge of pumping and piping systems.
It is also recommended that “Pump Fundamentals” is attended prior to attending KASA’s “Advanced Slurry Pumping & Piping” training seminar.
