Course Overview

It can be claimed that all advances in modern technology have been dependent upon a rapid developing pump technology. Next to the electric motor, pumps are the most widely used machines in the world. There is hardly a single piece of major equipment that does not in some way depend upon pumps for its successful operation. Three classes of pumps find use today: centrifugal, rotary and reciprocating. These terms apply only to the mechanics of moving the liquid, not to the service for which the pump is designed.

This course will cover the fundamentals of centrifugal ,reciprocating and rotary pumps and compressors. Moreover, their operation, troubleshooting ,maintenance , performance and fields of applications are thoroughly covered.


Upon successful completion of this course the participants shall be able to:

  • understand the principles and operation of centrifugal, reciprocating and rotary pumps.
  • learn about the design, installation , operation , troubleshooting and accessories of these machines.
  • learn about performance of these pumps and compressors
  • learn about selection, control and arrangement of these machines
  • learn about construction, operation and maintenance and trouble shooting of these machines.
