Dear student,

Centrifugal pumps of various designs and applications are encountered nowadays throughout refining, petrochemical and process industries as well as in power generation and environmental engineering.

This course is designed to provide you with a complete understanding of construction details and functioning of centrifugal pumps. This understanding is a prerequisite for successful operation of plant and piping system.

The course includes extensive graphics, 3D animations and cut sections to give you a virtual practical exposure on centrifugal pumps.

The objective of this course is threefold :

1. Break down for you all the centrifugal pump operating principles into easily digestible concepts like cavitation, performance curves, head, etc

2. Illustrate through 3D animations and cut-sections the main pump mechanical components like impellers, shafts, bearings, packing, mechanical seals, etc

3. Provide guidelines and best practices for operation, maintenance and troubleshooting

So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum and we look forward to see you in the first section.

Also remember, as enrolled student you will have unlimited access to this material and one-on-one instructor support. So feel free to interact with us by email or simply ask us for help in the Q&A section. It will be our pleasure to help you and provide assistance.
