Pumps and Compressors: Operation, Maintenance and Troubleshooting

Course Introduction

This course covers the construction, design, operations and maintenance of compressors, and rotary/centrifugal/reciprocating pumps. Topics discussed will include the different types of pumps and compressors, their potential problems, maintenance and testing concepts and troubleshooting techniques. The course will also cover the various methods of pump alignments such as visual, straight edge/feeler gauge, rim and face, reverse dial indication, cross dialing and laser alignment. Participants will also learn how to diagnose soft foot conditions and perform correction techniques.

Course Objective

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the operation of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps including pump design aspects, laws, performance comparisons, characteristic curves and performance testing
  • Test rotary pump performance and apply maintenance and troubleshooting techniques accordingly
  • Identify reciprocating pump types and perform reciprocating pump maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Determine centrifugal pump problems and perform centrifugal pump maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Identify compressor types, how they operate, their common problems, and perform troubleshooting techniques
  • Apply the various methods of pump alignments such as visual, straight edge and feeler gauge, rim and face, reverse dial indication, cross dialing and laser alignment
  • Diagnose soft foot conditions, and apply measurement and correction techniques
