e-Learning: Rotodynamic Pump Fundamentals

Participate in a free educational certificate program hosted by the Hydraulic Institute.
New!

The Rotodynamic Pumps Certificate Program Provides Overview on Technology, Pump Selection and Application.

Rotodynamic is the main family under which centrifugal pumps reside. One of two basic pump types (in addition to positive displacement), a centrifugal pump is a variable torque device that uses an impeller and volute casing to create a partial vacuum and discharge pressure to move water through a casing. Choosing between a centrifugal or positive displacement pump for an application requires an understanding of pump types.

The Rotodynamic Pumps Certificate Program is ideally suited for engineers, designs, maintains, installs, manufactures, specifies, sells, distributes or consults on pumps.
