Pump Optimisation: Performance, Reliability & Efficiency



18-20 September 2013, Johannesburg, South Africa




This course is designed to help the pump specialists understand how proper pump system design, operation, and maintenance can drastically reduce maintenance and operations costs, while simultaneously improving energy efficiency and safety. By stressing the fundamentals of pump system design and installation, maintenance techniques, and proper operation, this course empowers you to make better pumping related decisions. This leads to lower maintenance and operational costs as well as lower spare parts inventories, better product safety, and greatly reduced pump related energy cost. The benefits of this course are immediate and participants can put the practical knowledge into practice as soon as they return to their facilities. Participants are encouraged to bring information about current pumping problems in their own facility to discuss with the instructor.
