The course is designed to provide a detailed explanation of how a centrifugal pump is constructed and operated to achieve maximum reliability. Selecting the right pump for a specific application and identification of problems
associated with pump operation are determined through the use of pump curves and hydraulic calculations.
It is important to understand what a pump is and how it works in order to solve problems. This program will explain the basics so that you will be adequately prepared to understand certain design considerations, including sizing. In addition, this course provides the inside information on why and how centrifugal pumps are designed.
