Introduction

Understanding the design, operation & characteristics of High Pressure Pumps will have an important reflection on the process quality, equipment, plant reliability and the economics of the whole activity. Identifying the problems associated with these pumps is essential for diagnosis, troubleshooting and plan required maintenance.

This GLOMACS training course on High Pressure Pump Operation, Maintenance, Overhauling & Troubleshooting is designed to provide an in-depth perspective of High Pressure pump technology in terms of selection, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting. This training course will also cover single stage and multi stages centrifugal pumps and positive-displacement pumps. Packing, mechanical seals, sealing systems, wear rings, coupling and alignment and other vital components will be explained in detail.

This GLOMACS training course will advance the staff competencies as follows:

  • Knowledge of High Pressure pump operation, troubleshooting and maintenance in depth
  • Experience a unique blend of practical application and basic analysis methods
  • Understanding of pump operating principles and operating systems
  • Know the advantages and disadvantages of various pump types
  • Understanding of technical principles of fluid flow in pumping systems as a prerequisite for successful pump installation and operation

Objectives

  • Know the basics principal of High Pressure pump operations
  • Learn the different types of pumps
  • Understand the pump construction
  • Learn how the performance curve of pump is measured
  • Use the similarity laws to calculate the pump
  • Performance at different speed and rotor size
  • Highlight the importance of the related international standards of pumps
  • Familiarize with different auxiliary systems for pumps (oil system and protection system)
  • Understand the basics of sealing systems
  • Learn the maintenance procedure of pumps
  • Learn the common causes of pump failures (e.g. cavitation and vibrations)
  • Understand the mechanical design of the mechanical seal
  • Highlight the importance of seals on the rotating machines availability
  • Learn the Up-to date maintenance of the mechanical seal
  • Learn the failure analysis and troubleshooting the mechanical seal
  • Learn about different types of alignments
  • Learn about Casing, wear rings and impeller types and their usage

Training Methodology

A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions and motivate everybody find the right answers. The delegates will also be encouraged to raise their own questions and to share in the development of the solutions using their own analysis and experiences. Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
