Pump Acceptance Testing for Rotodynamic Pumps Webinar

Description: This session is ideal for Pump Users, Engineering Consultants, Pump Test Lab Personnel, Pump Specifiers, Pump Technicians, Engineering Staff and Pump Distributors. Participants also earn 1 professional development hour (PDH) credit directly from the Hydraulic Institute upon completion of the webinar. At the completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to identify duty points for pump acceptance tests, determine if a tested pump is within the permissible amplitude of fluctuation of measurement uncertainty, and interpret test acceptance grades and tolerances. Participants will also learn how to use default test acceptance grades in appropriate situations and use the Rotodynamic Pumps for Hydraulic Performance Acceptance Tests (ANSI/HI 14.6—2011) Standard to analyze the results from the testing.

Session Date: April 24, 2014
Session Time:
1:00-2:15pm EDT
Presenter: Richard Rindy, Pump Test Lab Manager with Weir Minerals North America
Series Fee: $99.00

The Pump Systems Optimization Course - Hosted by: The ABB Group

Description: The ABB Group, in partnership with the Hydraulic Institute has developed the Pump System Optimization course to explore in great depth how progressive companies can position themselves for success. We can contribute to the success of you and your organization!  This comprehensive seminar will bring you up to speed quickly by giving you a solid understanding and foundation in Improving the efficiency and reliability of your industrial pumping systems. Upon successful completion of subject course the student will be capable of identifying system optimization opportunities, discuss / promote the value of potential solution at upper management level, and effectively communicate the benefits of Life Cycle Costing.

Location: ABB Group Facility --- 16250 West Glendale Drive --- New Berlin, Wisconsin 53151
Course Date: Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Course Time:
8:00am - 4:00pm CDT
Presenter: Greg Case, President of Pump Design, Development, & Diagnostics, LLC.
Who Should Attend: This workshop is intended for design engineers, facility managers as well as engineering, operations and maintenance personnel that are involved with the design, selection, installation, maintenance, operation and optimization of pumping systems.

NEW: Rotodynamic Pumps for Vibration Measurement & Allowable Values Webinar

Description: The Hydraulic Institute, in collaboration with Jack Claxton from Patterson Pump Company and associated HI committee members, has launched a new webinar series that focuses on critical measurement made on non-rotating (bearing housings) of rotodynamic pumps. This new webinar series has been specifically designed for distributors, sales channels and even pump end-users. It also serves as an effective internal training tool for new engineers. Webinar attendees will gain in-depth information on maximum allowable vibration values and acceptance tests. If your customers use centrifugal or vertical pumps in clear water, solids handling or in slurry pump applications, this webinar will be useful for factory (vibration) acceptance tests as well as field vibration testing.

Session Date: May 8, 2014
Session Time:
1:00-2:00pm EDT
Presenter: Jack Claxton, Vice President of Engineering, Patterson Pump Company
Series Fee: $99.00

NEW: Rotodynamic Pumps: Guidelines for NPSH Margin Webinar

Description: The Hydraulic Institute has collaborated with Arnie Sdano from Pentair Flow Technologies and associated HI committee members to launch a new technical webinar program that focuses on NPSH and its relationship to cavitation and other pump operation.  No end user or pump supplier wants to experience the issues associated with lack of NPSH such as increased noise and vibration due to cavitation, beginning of head or efficiency drop, and eventual damage to pump impeller or casing. This NPSH webinar will provide participants with a method to calculate the available NPSH, understand how insufficient NPSHA will affect pump operation and what NPSH margin is needed to ensure good performance longevity to pump equipment.

Session Date: June 2, 2014
Session Time:
1:00-2:00pm EDT
Presenter: Arnie Sdano, Chief Engineer, Pentair Flow Technologies
Series Fee: $99.00
