Pumping - Positive Displacement
August 7th, 2019 - Gooding
Every system works with pumps.
This one-day class will identify, educate or provide a review of pump classifications for water and wastewater such as centrifugal pumps, positive displacement pumps and many more. We’ll review how to best select a new pump and will go over reading pump curves. In this class we will include knowledge of essential parts, maintenance, and troubleshooting on several types of pumps used in the water and wastewater systems. Whether your preference is diaphragm or peristaltic, learn about operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of these pumps in water and wastewater treatment. You will also be able to determine which pumps will work best in your application and which pumps to avoid. Also, we will discuss calculating doses and setting the controls of the equipment. We will also learn about piston, diaphragm, and peristaltic pumps, and others. Learn what you need to know about high head and low flow applications. It is difficult to beat positive displacement, but there are drawbacks also. We’ll cover the applications and proper usage of these mighty pumps.
