About this Training Course 

This 3-day intermediate to advanced level training course has been designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of the fluid mechanic fundamentals and operating practice of pumps, compressors and gas and steam turbines.

It will cover the important topics of Machinery Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) together with Prevention & Troubleshooting. Vibration analysis will be addressed in detail. Participants will be taken through an intensive primer of turbo-machinery principles, using the minimum of mathematics, and will learn how to solve the many and varied practical industrial problems that are encountered. The course will make use of an extensive collection of VIDEO material.

Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will have acquired the practical knowledge to enable them not only to choose the correct device for a particular application but also be in a position to resolve many commonly occurring operating problems.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply a comprehensive knowledge of pumps, compressors & turbines and troubleshoot rotating equipment in a professional manner
  • Identify the different types of turbomachinery including basic design aspects and highlighted problem areas
  • Minimise compressor work by understanding the processes involved and identifying their efficiency
  • Understand the flow through turbomachines and the corresponding velocity triangles including torque and power calculations
  • Analyse the different types of centrifugal machines including their design, installation, operation, maintenance, rerate/retrofit, troubleshooting and control
  • Recognise the various beneficial design aspects of turbomachines and understand the crucial process of cavitation
  • Carry out proper methods of device installation, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Understand and apply the powerful methods of Machinery Root Cause Failure Analysis
  • Understand the various methods of vibration analysis applied to device diagnostics

This course provides an overview of all significant aspects and considerations of pumps, compressors and turbines for those who are involved in the design, selection, maintenance or troubleshooting of such equipment. This includes maintenance, reliability, integrity, engineering, production and operations managers, engineers and other technical staff.
