2124 Taming Bad Actors (30)

This class “Taming the Bad Actors” is designed to help participants better understand:
Pumps and Pump/System Interaction
How to identify root cause failures
Life-Cycle Cost Analysis
Improving the Performance of the Pump and Pumping Systems

After completing this course you will gain valuable new skills, including:

The principles of operation of centrifugal pumps
How the centrifugal pump interacts with the pumping system
How to identify system problems that occur when operating pumps off BEP, including cavitation, suction recirculation, discharge recirculation
How to identify root cause failures
How to identify and implement basic performance improvement opportunities, including the methods and means available for increasing pump reliability and efficiency

This is an on-demand pay-per-view course (one-time access to each course segment for a period of 30 days from first login.)
