Introduction

This GLOMACS Pumps, Compressors & Turbines training course will feature the importance of proper operation and maintenance of rotating machineries such as pumps, compressors, and turbines of various designs and applications, which are encountered throughout chemical and process industries, including oil refineries, gas production facilities, power generation and other fields of engineering. It helps familiarize the engineers, technicians, and operators with the guidelines and best practices employed in using this equipment, including installation, operation, maintenance, and repair. The emphasis will be on the physical understanding of the problems in operation and the best way of troubleshooting them.

This training course will cover the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of these machines by highlighting characteristics features, efficiencies, reliability, and maintenance implications and introduce to the participants the different types of pumps, compressors, and turbines and their associated terminology. Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, compressors, and gas turbines packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings, and couplings will all be discussed.

This training course will highlight:

  • Principles of selection of right pump, compressor, and turbine for the given application
  • Practical issues related to trouble-free functioning of pumps, compressors, and turbines
  • Explanation of complex flow situations in pumps, compressors, and turbines
  • Guidelines for installation, operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting
  • Maintenance and repair economic issues: cost and benefit analysis

Objectives

By the end of this training seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand technical features of pumps, compressors and turbines
  • Select optimal type and size of equipment for a given industrial application
  • Use methods of estimating the degree of deterioration and inefficiency of equipment
  • Apply best practices and techniques of pinpointing the root cause of problems
  • Choose the most efficient remedies and troubleshooting techniques in operation

Training Methodology

This Pumps, Compressors & Turbines training seminar will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures and interactive worked examples included in several workshops. Presented also will be several illustrative and instructive videos. The emphasis in this GLOMACS training seminar will be on the explanation of all technical points and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice related to installation, operation and maintenance, as well as repair and alterations of pipeline systems.

Each learning point will be reinforced with practical examples. There will be ample opportunities for active discussion and sharing professional experiences and exchange that will help solidify the gained knowledge. All training seminar materials will be provided.
