Pumps Training System Lab

Location: Vizag

The Pumps Training Systems Lab familiarizes students with pump operation principles and associated maintenance tasks such as pump installation, lubrication, shaft alignment, inspection, and component replacement. Students also learn how to start up, operate, and troubleshoot industrial pumps in different configurations.

Furthermore, during these hands-on activities, students discover the impact of valve restriction, air injection, and Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) on pump efficiency by using a cavitation valve, a load valve, and two different water reservoirs.

The modularity of the systems allows the selection of models required to meet customized training objectives. A wide variety of pumps are also offered as individual options. The pumps that can be added to the Pumps Training Systems correspond to the most common types found in industry. Students are introduced to the use, characteristics and maintenance of each pump by disassembling the pump, and by measuring operating parameters.

Topics Covered: 

i. Pump installation

ii. Lubrification

iii. Shaft alignment

iv. Inspection

v. Component replacement

vi. Valve restriction

vii. Air injection

viii. Pump wiring

ix. Fluid mechanics

x. Pump maintenance

xi. Laser alignment

xii. Vibration analysis
