What you'll learn
  • Identify all the components of a centrifugal pump.
  • Know the purpose of each pump component.

  • Know how a centrifugal pump works.

  • Know how to read pump curves.
  • Identify common pump problems.
  • Know how to solve common pump problems.
  • And much more!
Requirements
  • A desire to learn.
  • Some engineering knowledge is beneficial, but lessons are explained in depth to allow students to build their knowledge from the ground up.
  • Students with an engineering background (HVAC, Power Engineering and Oil and Gas etc.) will be at an advantage, but an engineering background is not required.
Description

The centrifugal pump is the most common and widely used pump today. Its simple construction, low maintenance and low cost, have made it an ideal pump for widespread commercial application.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How a centrifugal pump works.

  • All of the centrifugal pumps main components.

  • Different impeller and centrifugal pump designs.

  • How to read a pump performance curve.

  • How to identify pump faults.

  • And a lot lot more!


The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning centrifugal pump knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (HVAC, fire safety, oil and gas, marine engineering, chemical engineering, power engineering etc.), I can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of my other courses...).


Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you each individual pump component and how these components work together to complete useful work. I strongly recommend you checkout the free preview videos before signing-up because I know you won't be disappointed.


The course is packed with 2D images, 2D animations, interactive 3D models and 3D animations.


Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.


Don't waste more time reading this course description, check-out the free preview videos and the curriculum, then make an informed decision. I hope to see you on the course!

Who this course is for:
  • This course would benefit anyone who wishes to know how a centrifugal pump works.
  • Particular benefit is for anyone working or training in a mechanical engineering related industry (oil and gas, marine, HVAC, power engineering, industrial engineering, chemical engineering etc.).
