Overview

Description

Pumps are devices used to raise, compress, or transfer fluids by mechanical action. Various types of pumps are available and are used depending upon the requirement. Pumps play a major role in a system. So, if there is a leakage, the entire system gets collapsed. The most effective method of preventing this leakage is by using seals. One of the best way to make these pumps function properly is by using lubricants. It reduces friction and also the noise when the pump operates and make them function smoothly for a longer period.
This course is designed to help students to become knowledgeable about pumps, sealings, lubricants, friction, and additives.
After completion of this course, students will know about pumps, its types, performance chart of the pumps, sealings and selection of lubricants & viscosity.

Instructor

Robert Snaith

HND (Mech.Eng)

With over 30 years of experience in fluid transport systems and associated equipment, Rob has done the hard yards. After graduating he commenced work in fluid system applications engineering. In later years, Rob expanded his focus to the management of the national and international distribution networks of a major international fluid sealing and transport equipment manufacturer. 
In the past decade as a private consultant, he has worked extensively in designing and troubleshooting complex fluid transport systems and equipment.

When not working long hours on the design, commissioning and troubleshooting of pumps, pipelines and associated equipment, Rob squeezes some time in for his Harley Davidson motorbike and scuba diving expeditions. He has done many presentations and workshops throughout the world and was placed in the world’s top three in an international, "Train the Trainer" exam during a workshop in Boston, Massachusetts in 1998.

One of his passions and sources of enjoyment is instructing technical courses and he is in constant demand both locally and internationally. No matter whether you have very little knowledge or are a veritable guru; you will be sure to take away valuable information from his courses.
