About The Event

NOTE: Participants are expected to know Pump Fundamentals 101 with knowledge of pump curves and basic theory of how different pumps work.

Course Outline:

Picking the correct pump type for specific applications:

  • What type of pump to pick for light hydrocarbon (ethane, propane, etc.)​
  • Viscous applications (bitumen, cold crude, etc.)
  • Light abrasive services (ore preparation area in oil sands mining, sump tanks, light slurry like lime or Magox)
  • Low NPSHa applications (API Type VS6, when is a larger slow model applicable, what model has tolerance to run dry or better handle cavitation issues)
  • Self-priming versus sump pumps (are modifications necessary)
  • Low shear applications (positive displacement pumps)
  • Run dry applications (multiphase, pad pumps, AODD, hydraulic diaphragm, sliding vane, lobe pumps)
  • Low flow, high head applications

Sometimes there would be multiple types of pumps that could be selected, sometimes it would be limited. When not to use a certain type of pump is also important

Course covers:

  • Horizontal centrifugal​
  • Vertical centrifugal
  • Inline pumps
  • Regenerative turbines and side channels
  • All types of reciprocating pumps
  • All types of rotary positive displacement pumps

Application type case studies that have challenges could be reviewed, such as:

  • Boiling fluids from a bullet,​
  • Flare knockout drum service (VS4 sump pump, PC pump, and other low NPSHr pump types)
  • Pipeline pump - variable suction pressure and flow
  • Blending - constant discharge with variable flow
