Details

This program is designed to expose participants to the different types of pumps and valves and their associated terminology, judge the suitability of different types of pumps and valves for their needs, and learn how to operate and maintain them for the benefit of their organizations. Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings will all be discussed. Valves for isolation and valves for control will be addressed. The application of the different types of pumps and valves will be discussed along with their suitability for different operational duties. Operation, troubleshooting and maintenance will be dealt with in depth.

This course is particularly aimed at operating personnel performing in oil & gas production as well as process and maintenance engineers. The course shall also be beneficial to other technical personnel who want to broaden their knowledge on the operations and maintenance of pumps and valves technology.


At the end of this program, participants will be able to:·
§Have an understanding of the different types of pumps and their associated terminology
§Have an understanding of Centrifugal and positive displacement pumps, packing, mechanical seals and sealing systems, bearings and couplings
§Have an understanding of different parameters affecting the operation of valves
§Have the ability to select the right valve for the particular application and to perform the necessary calculation for valve sizing
§Have the ability to perform troubleshooting of systems involving valves
§Have the ability to decide on the right maintenance plan concerning different types of valves
