Industrial equipment and Turbo-machinery, Pumps, Compressors, Turbines & Motors: Section, Sizing, Applications, Operation, Diagnostic testing, Troubleshooting, Maintenance & Failure Analysis

Course Reference:  WTS/12/43

Course Duration:  Five days

Maximum efficiency, reliability, and longevity of pumps, compressors, turbines, bearing and motors are of great concern to many industries. These objectives can only be achieved by understanding the characteristics, selection criteria, sizing calculations, sealing arrangements, common problems, troubleshooting, repairs techniques, preventive and predictive maintenance of those turbo-machineries. This course is a MUST for anyone who is involved in the selection, calculations, sizing, applications, troubleshooting or maintenance of pumps, compressors, turbines, bearings or motors. It covers how this equipment operates and provides the guidelines and rules that must be followed for a successful application. Their basic design, specification and selection criteria, sizing calculations as well as all maintenance issues including troubleshooting, vibration analysis, and used oil analysis are covered in detail. This course is designed to provide delegates with a detailed and up-to-date overview of the fluid mechanic fundamentals and operating practice of pumps, compressors, turbines and motors. It will address aspects of both axial and centrifugal compressors. 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. This course is ideal for those personnel in the oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical, power and other process industries who require a wider and deeper appreciation of pumps, compressors, turbines and motors, including their design, performance and operation. No prior knowledge of the topic is required. 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 use of an extensive collection of VIDEO material.
Upon the successful completion of this course, each participant will be able to: Apply an up-to-date knowledge and skills of the latest technologies in industrial equipment and turbo machines including pumps, compressors, turbines and motors and apply systematic techniques on selection, sizing, application, operation, testing, troubleshooting and maintenance of turbo machinery. Identify the various types of compressors, performance measurements and preventive maintenance Illustrate the operation and characteristics of centrifugal and axial compressors as well as compressor systems calculations Define and categorise pumps and discuss centrifugal pump theory, general performance and basic components List types of bearing and explain statistical nature of bearing life Demonstrate viscosity of lubricants and oil analysis Describe viscosity of lubricants and oil analysis Describe the characteristics of induction motors including their speed control, maintenance, troubleshooting techniques and diagnostic testing for failures in three-phase stator windings Illustrate vibration instrumentation and analysis, the cause of vibration and predictive maintenance Implement the latest techniques and procedures of turbo-machinery maintenance and troubleshooting Recognise the root causes of machine failure like the vibration and employ the proper steps to troubleshoot anomalies Employ troubleshooting techniques in accordance with the turbo machinery API & ISO standards and specifications
This course is intended for those dealing with industrial equipment, machinery and rotating equipment such as engineers, supervisors, foremen and other technical staff.
