This EuroMaTech training course will focus on the importance of rotating machinery such as pumps, compressors and turbines of various designs and applications, which are encountered throughout process industry, petrochemical and oil and gas industries. This EuroMaTech training course will start with an introduction to liquid and gas systems including pressure and head, capacity and flow, friction head losses & operational dynamics. Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, compressors and turbines, will all be introduced, together with their main construction and parts. The application of the different types of pumps, compressors and turbines will be discussed along with their suitability for different operational duties. Operation, troubleshooting and maintenance will also be dealt with.
The key highlights of this EuroMaTech training course are:
- Solid knowledge of basic principles of fluid flow
- Optimisation of the operation and maintenance of different types of pumps, compressors and turbines
- Confidence to troubleshoot problems related to pumps compressors and turbines, thereby avoiding repetitive failures
- Allow tighter control of maintenance budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service
