Before making any corrections when solving a pump operation problem, it is important to analyze the possible causes by visually inspecting the main pump components. Always make one correction at a time to eliminate possible causes one after another, in order to obtain the best solution.
This course covers the problems that can be encountered with pumps; their causes and possible solutions; and pump inspection, lubrication, and maintenance.
Topics covered in this course include:
- causes of failure,
- packing wear,
- preventive maintenance, and
- suggestions for practical exercises.
