Pumps make more than 90% of plant machineries and maintenance issues. Unacceptably large number of pumps fail unnecessarily or sometime catastrophically every year. The over-riding aim of pumps and system training course is to reduce the costs associated with owning and running pumps, while increasing efficiency and capacity.
Pumps are used throughout an oil refinery or chemical plant pumping liquids (hydrocarbons and chemicals) around from one process to another in the manufacturing process. An oil refinery or chemical plant may have 300 or more pumps involved in the various refining and manufacturing processes. It also has a few pumps pumping water in cooling system.
Organizations spend millions running and repairing pumps. Nine out of ten pumps fail early. If we can improve reliability we can reduce the cost of owning pumps considerably. Power is a major cost for any organization. If we can reduce the amount of power required to run our pumps, we can reduce the cost of owning them considerably. Appropriate selection and operating at BEP, World-class practices provide great reliability and availability.
Salvo’s 3-day course will give attendees practical techniques for optimizing pumps performance achieve high reliability and availability and therefore making a huge difference to the organization’s profitability. The attendees are led through the road to high Pumps’ reliability and availability through failures analysis for Pumps’ failure avoidance; Pumps’ failure analysis and troubleshooting.
