Course Description

The centrifugal pump is the most common and widely used pump today. Its simple construction, low maintenance and low cost, have made it an ideal pump for widespread commercial application.

In this course, you will learn:
- How a centrifugal pump works.
- All of the centrifugal pumps main components.
- Different impeller and centrifugal pump designs.
- How to read a pump performance curve.
- How to identify pump faults.
- And a lot lot more!

The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning centrifugal pump knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher, whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (HVAC, power engineering, oil and gas, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering etc.).

Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you each individual pump component and how these components work together to complete useful work.

The course is packed with images, 2D animations, interactive 3D models and 3D animations and high quality written content. Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.
