The programme will focus on the importance of rotating machinery such as pumps, compressors and turbines of various designs and applications, which are encountered throughout process industry, petrochemical and oil and gas industries. The programme will start with an introduction to liquid and gas systems including pressure and head, capacity and flow, friction head losses and operational dynamics.
Centrifugal and positive-displacement pumps, compressors and turbines, will all be introduced, together with their main construction and parts. The application of the different types of pumps, compressors and turbines will be discussed along with their suitability for different operational duties. Operation, troubleshooting and maintenance will also be dealt with.
The knowledge gained in this programme will provide better understanding of pumps, compressors and turbines in complex operating conditions. The delegates will be able to develop a proactive maintenance system which will allow better inspection, control and monitoring with the goal of avoiding unplanned equipment failures and maximising compressor and turbine availability and reliability
