This course covers the construction, design, operation, and maintenance of rotary, centrifugal and rotary
compressors and pumps, as well as various topics and types of pumps, compressors, potential problems,
maintenance concepts, and troubleshooting techniques. It also covers different alignment methods for pumps such
as optical alignment, straight edge / RIM, and Face alignment, reverses cursor alignment, reverses connection, and
laser alignment. Participants will learn how to diagnose soft foot conditions and implement correction techniques.
The purpose of the course
At the end of this course the participants will be able to:
Describe of centrifugation and positive displacement including pump design, rules, performance
comparisons, characteristic curves, and performance testing.
