As the process of industrialization and modernization gathers momentum in the environment of liberalization or globalization, the demand for pumps and its connecting parts is expected to be enhanced, hence extra care is to be taken at the selection of right type of pump for desired pumping service for obtaining reliability as well as profitability in the present competitive industrial market.

There are three types of problems mostly encountered with centrifugal pumps: 
• Design errors 
• Poor operation 
• Poor maintenance practices


Who Should Attend
These programs have been prepared for people who have some exposure to centrifugal pumps and are seeking a greater understanding of the design variables, selection process, operation and maintenance of these machines so that they can apply the knowledge in their work environment. The programs will most benefit those who are involved in some aspect of pumping system design, pump application, or operation of centrifugal pumps. Engineering/Technical educational background coupled with some experience in pump related fields will allow you to derive full benefit from these programs.

In particular, the following groups may find the programs of direct benefit:

  • Operations and maintenance engineers in the mining, power, process and general industries;
  • Pump manufacturers and distributors of engineered centrifugal pumps;
  • Rotating equipment engineer in the process industries;
  • Engineers working for consultancies and involved in the selection of centrifugal pumps;
  • Engineers involved in urban water supply and sewage disposal scheme;
  • HVAC & Fire System engineers in the building services industries.


Key Takeaways

  • Understand the failure modes - power, temperature, corrosion, leakage, pressure, vibration, etc.
  • Decide on monitoring frequency and control limits.
  • Familiarize yourselves with various means of monitoring pump performance and health parameters.
  • Identify opportunities for energy optimization in your existing pumping systems.
  • Decide whether to replace an inefficient pump or retrofit the pump with a custom-designed impeller.
  • Identify energy optimization projects with low risk but high energy saving potential.
  • Do cost-benefit analysis of any energy optimization project involving pumping systems.
  • Compute life cycle cost of your pumping system.

Market Research

The International Affairs Institute (IAI) and OCP Policy Center recently launched a new book: The Future of Natural Gas. Markets and Geopolitics.


The book is an in-depth analysis of some of the fastest moving gas markets, attempting to define the trends of a resource that will have a decisive role in shaping the global economy and modelling the geopolitical dynamics in the next decades.

Some of the top scholars in the energy sector have contributed to this volume such as Gonzalo Escribano, Director Energy and Climate Change Programme, Elcano Royal Institute, Madrid, Coby van der Linde, Director Clingendael International Energy Programme, The Hague and Houda Ben Jannet Allal, General Director Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME), Paris.
