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.

Training centre promotes best pump practice

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.
