Modern technology is moving at a blistering pace and the world of pumps is part of this change. Computer software can now easily model pipe work systems, select pumps, calculate energy losses (individual pipes) and draw up bills of quantity, literally in seconds. In the right hands those tools are massive time savers, training aids, and excellent facilitators of communication within the organization and with clients. In the wrong hands, they can be generators of costly mistakes. The main focus on this course is to give delegates the confidence to gain a clear appreciation of the steps required to design pumping systems that minimize the cost of ownership (Life Cycle Cost) while meeting all the requirements of the intended process.
During this workshop, Mr. John Tonkin will be covering the following topics :
•System resistance curves
•Net positive suction head (NPSH) available: A system perspective, published performance data and pump selection
•Impeller diameter changes
•Series operation, speed variation in centrifugal pumps
•Parallel pumping systems
•Conducting an energy audit.
Participants will have the chance to meet Mr. John Tonkin who will be the trainer for this workshop.Having started his career in power stations, John progressed through the merchant marine (steam) and onto the design, marketing and after sales support of pumps, pipe work systems and valves. He is the director of marketing for one of South Africa’s premier pump companies and responsible for the research and Development and for the local and international marketing departments for this company. John’s style is practical and straight forward with the ultimate programme objective being positive behavior change. Some of the John’s clients include SASOL Synfuels, Anglo American, Wilo Pumps South Africa, Xylem, ESKOM, Petrosa. He has been offering practical solutions to all aspects of the fluid movement market.
Top Link also provide corporate In-house Training Programme if more than 8 delegates from the organization will be attending the in-house course.
