Hydro Innovations has just opened a New Training Centre, called the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute, to assist their customers in the selection, troubleshooting and maintenance of centrifugal pumps. The centre will focus most attention on self priming pumps, but aspects of the curricula offered will include standard centrifugal and submersible pumps.
The Institute covers two floors, and houses a variety of training assets. The main “attraction” is a full size functioning pump station on the first floor, with suction lines going down into a clear wet well system on the ground floor, demonstrating the self priming process very clearly through clear acrylic suction lines. Other training assets include a glass faced pump and a full-size “tear-down” pump.
The glass faced pump is a full size pump with a glass front. This allows observers to see the inside workings of a centrifugal pump, and is capable of demonstrating a raft of troubleshooting scenarios, including air binding, pipe blockages, and many others.
The “tear-down” pump enables training for operators and fitters on disassembly and reassembly of a centrifugal pump, including tips on seal and bearing installation, setting pump clearances, and other key elements in repair and maintenance procedures. The Hydro Innovations team hope that this element of operator training, along with gauge reading and troubleshooting training will help keep pumping assets at their efficient best for long and trouble free time.
Achieving Excellence Through Effective Training Solutions
The aim of the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute is to increase organisational effectiveness in selecting and applying the right pump for each application with our hydraulics and design programs, and also to be able to get the most from equipment investment through our troubleshooting and maintenance training programs.
For any organisation to maintain its viability in a highly competitive market, solid training programs are essential. Hydro Innovations understands this and recognises that engineers need to know about the latest technologies and application solutions, and maintenance teams need to be able to read pump curves, troubleshoot problems and use leading practices to maximise equipment service life.
When you need training for an entire team, a private on-site program is a great solution. Our team can come to you to deliver a curriculum tailored to your specific needs. As these sessions can vary substanti-ally in content and training asset requirements, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Tuned to Meet Specific Needs
As we work with customers of various sizes and disciplines, Hydro Innovations are able to discuss training options and tailor programs to suit the needs of each individual organisation.
The vision of the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute is to continuously improve the pump knowledge base of our customers so that they end up with the right pump solutions for their various applications and are able to keep their pumps at peak operational efficiency for decades of effective pumping.
With a variety of hydraulic training assets and tools at our disposal, the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute offers a variety of educational programs at Rydalmere, NSW along with inexpensive travel packages to enable customers and engineering firms to participate.
