Centrifugal Pump Operation and Maintenance



Assuming that a plant is a body of human being, pumps are the “heart” of the body. Those play very important and vital roles to flow the “blood” of a plant. In every plant or production operation system, we find pumps. However, unlike bolts and nuts, neither industry nor production-operation management will put pumps in stock. It is NOT cost effective and is very uncommon practice to put a complete set of pump in the warehouse stock due to financial reasons.

Therefore, this training enable the participants to understand basic theory of centrifugal pump and installation, performance, operation, Inspection and maintenance of centrifugal pumps and troubleshooting.(ci)
