This workshop will provide a good understanding of pump designs, application-related differences between the pump types, as well as obtain a practical and unique hands-on reassembly experience to supplement the theory. This workshop provides an opportunity to learn the latest pump technologies to help solve your specific problems. It also provides an opportunity to interact and learn so that you can implement improved design & troubleshooting techniques that can be applied, immediately at your plant.


This technical and “ hands on” oriented workshop is focused towards consulting & project engineers, plant operators, maintenance personnel, and facility management who are involved with the installation, start up and operation of vertical turbine pumps.
