Descaling Pump Reliability Summit / Chicago, IL / June 5-6, 2019

Location: 1126 W. 40th Street in Chicago, IL

Date(s): June 5-6, 2019

Descaling systems can be very complex, consisting of descaling pumps, valves, descaling nozzles and other ancillary equipment. They also offer almost infinite possibilities to “fine tune” the system to provide significant energy savings and maximum reliability.

Hydro personally invites you to the Chicago HydroAire Descaling Pump Reliability Summit! This 2-day technical event will be focused on reliability improvements using recent technology specific to descaling pumps, valves, descaling nozzles, mechanical seals, pump testing, and remote monitoring. Below are specific topics that will be covered during our 2-day summit along with the presentation of several case studies.

  • Best repair practices & maintenance tips
  • System Optimization & Energy Savings Monitoring
  • Vibration analysis & Remote Monitoring
  • Testing & Reverse engineering
  • Material Improvement Upgrades & Laser Cladding
  • Case Studies
During the case studies, the benefits of improving the performance of pumping systems; system optimization and basic pump system interaction will be discussed. The summit will also look at how to screen pumping systems for good system improvement candidates and how to identify and implement basic performance improvement opportunities. The aggregate sum of these efforts can often result in $1m plus in energy savings and reduced maintenance costs.

e-Learning: Rotodynamic Pump Fundamentals

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

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.
