    Short CourseThis course is aimed at technical professionals who need a broad-based introduction to basic pump selection, application and operation. This course starts with the basics and builds to provide a full understanding of centrifugal, rotary and reciprocating pumps. The course will include the following topics: centrifugal, rotary and reciprocating pump similarities/differences; centrifugal, rotary and reciprocating pump configurations; nine fundamental principles for reliable pump operation; understanding pump curves; developing system curves; choosing a type of pump for a specific application. The course will answer the question What are the things I need to worry about when selecting, specifying and operating pumps? At the completion of the course, the attendees will hold a strong understanding of basic concepts. This knowledge will act as a springboard to further growth understanding of more complex pump concepts. An emphasis is placed on providing useful information with minimal theory and thus, comprehension of the information presented requires little to no mathematical skills in hydraulic or mechanical design

    Discussion GroupMechanical seals are the most common method of sealing industrial centrifugal pumps and other rotary equipment. Although the basic concepts of a seal is simple, successfully using seals requires an understanding of the selection and operational requirements which can be unique for a specific application. In this discussion group, we will cover many of these considerations along with other application experiences from end users and seal OEMs. The discussion group will actively solicit topics from the attendees so the discussions will address real-world problems and challenges faced by the group. Typical topics covered in this discussion group include: Changes in upcoming API 682 4th edition Air testing of seals in pumps prior to installation Challenges with low temperatures sealing Effective leakage containment of single seals Strengths and weaknesses in Plan 53A, 53B, and 53C piping plans Considerations when sealing abrasive slurries How to apply dual pressurized gas seals Mechanical seals for multiphase applications Advances in seal face materials Process for handling problem pump and seal applications Definition of mean time between failure and industry best practices How and when to use split seal
