Course Description

Introduction

This GLOMACS Practical Pump & Valve Technology online training seminar will introduce delegates to the different types of pumps and valves and their associated terminology. Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings will all be discussed. Valves for isolation and valves for control will be addressed.

The application of the different types of pumps and valves will be discussed along with their suitability for different operational duties. Operation, troubleshooting and maintenance will be dealt with in depth.

The knowledge gained in this GLOMACS online training seminar will:

  • Enable the delegate to optimise the operation and maintenance of different types of pumps
  • Give the delegate confidence to carry out failure analyses on pumps thereby avoiding repetitive failures
  • Allow tighter control of maintenance budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service

Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS online training seminar on Practical Pump & Valve Technology, participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the different types of pumps and their associated terminology
  • Have an understanding of Centrifugal and positive displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings
  • Have an understanding of different parameters affecting the operation of valves
  • Have the ability to select the right valve for the particular application and to perform the necessary calculation for valve sizing
  • Have the ability to perform troubleshooting of systems involving valves
  • Have the ability to decide on the right maintenance plan concerning different types of valves

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.

Organisational Impact

On completion of this GLOMACS Practical Pump & Valve Technology training seminar, the delegate will be able to critically analyse the methodologies employed within the organisation and instigate improvements where required.

Personal Impact

Technical knowledge is key to effective control and peer respect within any maintenance organisation, when this is achieved personal satisfaction follows. This GLOMACS Practical Pump & Valve Technology online training seminar will give the delegate the required level of technical knowledge and skill to achieve that personal satisfaction.
