Pumps are a major capital cost item, are essential to process availability and consume huge amounts of energy. For most companies the costs of owning, operating and maintaining pumps are much higher than they should be. A shortage of knowledge on how to select, specify, install, operate and maintain pumping equipment is the major reason for these high costs.
Equip Global’s 3-day Pump Performance and Reliability is the foremost pump training program focused on teaching you how to prevent pump failure and reduce power consumption, hence improve the overall performance of your Pumps. It combines practicality with theory in such a way that any pump user can prevent pump failure and reduce the cost of pump ownership.
By identifying how to separate symptoms from problems, you will learn how to reduce operating and maintenance costs by increasing the reliability and performance of pumps.
By attending this training course, you will gain the following:
- Understand how system resistance controls the pump
- Learn how to read and use a pump curve
- Learn how the flow rate impacts pump reliability
