Pumping Machinery Consulting and Training



From the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)

New York City

(June 3-5, 2003)


Intense 3 days of pump theory, system, hydraulics, and hands-on work - centrifugal and positive displacement pumps. 




Hands-on in actions - centrifugal pumps, internal and external gear pumps, multiple screw pumps, progressing cavity pumps, and more.


- there was a test too!


A feature presentation included pumps and parts made from structural engineered composite materials for Water & Waste handling applications. Similarly to chemical, marine, paper and power industries, the W&W pump parts made from simsite composites can save thousands of dollars in energy costs and maintenance improvements. They are 80% lighter then metal - thus reduced shaft deflection and longer seal and bearings life; excellent corrosion and cavitation resistance - improved impeller life as compared to iron, bronze and stainless. With strength approaching metal, and temperature ratings to 400 deg. F, these composites are providing solutions to many plant maintenance problems, and save operating dollars.
