PUMP & COMPRESSOR: Control, Operation, Maintenance, & Trouble Shooting

Santika Hotel, Balikpapan, East Kalimantan |May 30th – June 1st 2011 |IDR 6.500.000,-


The pump & compressor is a comprehensive course focussing on the fundamentals of centrifugal pumps and compressors. You will have an opportunity to discuss Pump/Comressor construction, design, operation, maintenance and management issues and be provided with the most up-to-date information and best practice in dealing with the subject. Toward the end of the workshop, you will have developed the skills and ability to recognise and solve simple pump/compressor problems in a structured and cinfident manner.



Participants will learn how to:

  1. Explain and understand pumps/compressor terminology
  2. Indentify various type of pumps/compressors
  3. Understand pumps/compressors characteristic and interpret pump/compressors curves
  4. Understand pump/compressors type and classification
  5. Understand Criteria for pump/compressors selection
  6. Perorm a number of simple pump/compressor calculation
  7. Confidently test and commission pump/compressor sets
  8. explain how pump/compressor are constructed
  9. Detail how to install, test and commission pump/compressor systems
  10. Explain how to start up a new pump/compressor or one after strip down for maintenance
