Petrochemical industry is one of the expanding industries allover the world due its high profit and quick turn over. It needs huge investments to fulfill its requirements which are mainly sophisticated equipment like thermal equipment (boilers, heat exchangers, fired gas heaters…), rotating equipment (pumps, turbines, gas compressors, air blowers……), catalytic chemical reactors and gas reformers. The course presents the major types of these equipment and highlights their recent technological aspects for installation, operation, maintenance & troubleshooting.

The seminar covers how these equipments operate and provides guidelines and rules that must be followed for a successful operation. Their basic design, operating characteristics, specification, selection criteria, installation and commissioning requirements, advanced fault detection techniques, critical components as well as all their maintenance and troubleshooting methods are covered in detail. This seminar also covers advanced maintenance techniques such as “Used Oil Analysis”, and “Vibration Analysis” in detail.

  • To provide a comprehensive understanding of the various types of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps, compressors, valves, actuators, and bearings. Participants will be able to specify, select, commission and maintain these equipment for their applications.
  • To describe the benefits of advanced maintenance techniques such as “Used Oil Analysis”, and “Vibration Analysis”.
  • To achieve reduced capital, operating and maintenance costs along with increase in efficiency.
  • To lay out the major types of process plant equipment
  • To enable attendees to grasp the advanced information in basic design issues for major equipment
  • To present the main requirements for installation concerning each type of equipment
  • To illiterate the importance of good operability for each type of equipment
  • To clarify the vital role of different types of maintenance regimes in successful and continuous production operation
  • To present examples of troubleshooting through some case studies
