To Date: 17-Mar-2022
5 Days

Ref No:        ME054
Title:            Pumps & Valve Technology
Start Date:  13 March 2022  End Date: 17 March 2022  
Venue:         Dubai, UAE
Fee:              $4,500

In any of the 5 star hotels. The exact venue will be informed once finalized.

The course will cover topics concerning different types of industrial valves, the control valves and the safety relief valves. Hydraulic pumps, the dynamic and the positive displacement types will be addressed in this course. The sealing and flushing systems plus bearing and lubrication loops are also covered.
The selection and troubleshoot of such systems will also be addressed in detail. Delegates will learn how different system operate, their limit of performance and the best operating condition with least troubles and least failure.


The participant will gain deeper understanding of the control valves and safety relief valves used in different industrial applications. The delegates will learn more about different types of hydraulic as well as dynamic pumps, their performance, operation, control and trouble shooting. The delegate will be able to select the appropriate type of valves and pumps for the application.


Heads of Maintenance and Operation, Mechanical and Chemical Engineers, Equipment Specialists, Technical Engineers, Operation Engineers, Planning Engineers, Engineers involved with control and safety valves and pumps of different types.
