Equipment must be prepared for disassembly after a major break or for maintenance. The pump to be repaired is generally assembled in parallel with other pumps. It must therefore be isolated.
When dismantling a pump for maintenance, it is important to make sure that there are no immediate consequences on production if the pump is stopped. In order to maximize pump efficiency, it is important to respect the assembly suggested by the manufacturer.
This course covers the logical sequence for pump assembly and disassembly as well as the tools to be used.
Topics covered in this course include:
- pumping theory,
- pump characteristics,
- shut-down procedure,
- packing replacement,
- pump disassembly,
- post-disassembly inspection,
- pump assembly,
- start-up procedure,
- centrifugal pump simulation, and
- suggestions for practical exercises.
