Basic hydraulics is a 1-day course on hydraulic principles of operation for centrifugal pumps, with a focus on the correlation between the centrifugal pump performance and the system head curve.
This course is designed for maintenance supervisors, maintenance foreman, consulting engineers, system engineers, process design engineers, and anyone else who is involved with the selection, operation or maintenance of pumping equipment and systems.
Training Instructor: Bob Jennings
Bob Jennings is a Hydraulic Institute certified instructor with more than 30 years’ experience in the pump industry. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to our training seminars and always welcomes open discussion of real-life technical problems during the sessions.
The classroom session includes a review of individual pump components and how they relate to one another. Industry experts Bob Jennings and Eric Egipciaco will lead the training sessions, conduct the service center tour, and will be available to answer your pump and systems questions.
There will be an in-depth demonstration in our shop that will show submersible pumps in different stages of disassembly during the inspection process. The afternoon session will conclude with a tour of Hydro’s 5,000 HP certified pump test lab.
Seminar Topics Include:
- Typical Lift Stations, Fit and Function
- Calculating Basin Size
- Affinity Laws
- Variable Frequency Drives and System Head Curves
