Our pump training courses are tailored to the attendee. They can be an in depth look at common pump applications, including selection, operation, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Or the course can be for personnel that conduct maintenance and or operations just looking to better understand how the pump operates. In several cases we have instructed personnel how to be a forensic pump problem solver. Additionally some people not in the direct pump industry (Purchasing, general management, pipe and valve and electrical people) will find this to be a valuable course for learning the importance of proper pump operation, typical behavior in specific applications, proper piping design, the importance of proper alignments, pipe strain mitigation and reduction, and foundation/baseplate design.
These courses are taught by our experienced and knowledgeable pump experts, who can answer questions about how system changes can alter pump operation and the best way to respond to system modifications. Our pump training is designed to provide you with practical knowledge and skills required to address common concerns involving pumps. This training will give you the ability to take what you’ve learned and apply it immediately.
Seminars can be customized to meet each company’s requirements and skill levels. Our seminars normally consists of classroom and hands on work. The follow is an example of a recent seminar provided for one of our energy customers.

This also holds true for the pumps operating in your facilities and plants. We see many mechanical seal and bearing failures caused as a direct result of unbalanced rotating equipment. Many repair shops will proform extensive repair work to impellers and other rotating parts and will neglect to properly balance the rotating element when repairs are complete. As experts in pump repair, we ensure that this part of the repair process is taken very seriously. Rotating elements are balanced to meet or exceed the Hydraulic Institute and OEM specifications.
