Centrifugal pumps are among the most used machines in the world as their various designs permit their use in a variety of applications. They are used in everything from washing machines, refrigerators, cars and trucks to construction sites, wastewater treatment facilities and food processing plants. Pump running with least troubles and consequent less downtime improves whole system reliability. Right selection & operation, effective maintenance & inspection programs, and skilled staff are essential factors for prolonged pump life. This course is intended to enable the participants to learn more about pumps maintenance to achieve this required understanding. During the course, participant’s discussion, comments and own problems are welcomed and encouraged.
