Centrifugal Pump Operation

Learners begin with an introduction to pumps, pump safety and installation, and pump operation. Individual lessons focus on topics like functions of a pump, six rules of safe dress, and flow vs. pressure characteristics. Learners will also learn industry-relevant skills, such as how to identify pump systems, install a centrifugal pump with a foot mount, and start up a centrifugal pump.

Centrifugal Pump Characteristics

Learners will study the characteristics of centrifugal pumps, including pump flow rate measurement and head concepts. Individual lessons focus on topics like three methods of measuring pump flow rate, converting between units of head and pressure, and how to use a throttle control valve to adjust flow rate. Learners will also study industry-relevant skills, such as converting mass and volumetric rate flow, using a flow meter, and measuring total head for a centrifugal pump.
