This course presents mixed Technical / Academic course showing the definition of common terms in fluid Mechanics, Equations and the Techniques of Centrifugal Pumps to raise the capability of the trainee for carrying out correct evaluation of the under hand pumping station.
This course is constructed for Mechanical Engineers and Technicians who are in need to refresh and enhance their knowledge in the fluid pumping stations.
Principles of fluid pumping:
Definitions of Common Terms: Static Head - Dynamic Head - Total Head - Pressure Gauges Location - Velocity and fluid flow in pipes.
Types of pumps
Centrifugal pumps: Pump Construction; (Impeller)- (Casing)- (Power shaft)- (Pump/Motor Coupling) - (Pump Bearings), (Cooling and lubrication of pumps) - (Air Ventilation devices); (Detail~ Material, Function, Types, Fitting, Sealing).
pump pahs and processing: : Pump Mano-metric Head - Suction Head -Delivery Head - Velocity of suction in submerged pumps. - Friction losses - Hydraulic loss - Hydraulic Power - Input Power - Pump Hydraulic Mechanical and overall Efficiencies - Net Positive Suction Head NPSH - Cavitations in Pumps - Axial Thrust in Pumps -Hammering in Pipe Lines - Control Systems of Fluid Flow and Pressure.
Classifications of Centrifugal Pumps: According to: (number of stages, location, positioning, supports operating conditions, etc.) According to:(pump design and function; Volute Pumps., Single or multistage, End Suction or In-Line Pumps, Single or Double Suction Pumps, Self Priming or mixed flow Pumps: (construction, Specifications, Application, Performance curves.
Construction and operation of some types process pumps.
Technical Specifications: (pump motor): (Selection of pumps, Pump Installation, Conditions of Stocking, Safety instructions)
Pump Maintenance and Troubleshooting.
