Pipeflow Expert

Pipeflow expert is an online-only training course, especially for the design engineers and maintenance engineers that are responsible for pump selection and maintenance. With the utilization of Pipeflow Expert, you will be able to simulate the existing equipment and be able to discover how the pump is actually running on its performance curve. This will allow for the right adjustments in the system or a justification to exchange the pump with a more suitable pump.

Course objectives include:

  • Pump terminology
  • Pump types and classifications
  • Design differences between major pump types
  • Pump operation

  • Cavitation
  • TDH requirements
  • Pump efficiency
  • Energy, work and brake horsepower
  • Steep versus flat pump curves
  • Variable speed pumping
  • Speed governing pump designs
  • Specific speed and NPSHR (HSV)
  • Closed and open pumping systems
  • Start-up procedures
  • Troubleshooting
  • Pump installation
  • Proper foundations
  • Air entrainment

EPANET

EPANET is a software application used throughout the world to model water distribution systems. It was developed as a tool for understanding the movement and fate of drinking water constituents within distribution systems, and can be used for many different types of applications in distribution systems analysis. Today, engineers and consultants use EPANET to design and size new water infrastructure, retrofit existing aging infrastructure, optimize operations of tanks and pumps, reduce energy usage, investigate water quality problems, and prepare for emergencies. It can also be used to model contamination threats and evaluate resilience to security threats or natural disasters.

The EPANET course is for those that have been working with EPANET and in this course, the user will learn how to improve the system with a better understanding of how the pumps react to system changes. In this course, we will also use Pipeflow Expert as an additional tool to work with the pump curves.

Course objectives include:

  • Pump terminology
  • Pump types and classifications
  • Design differences between major pump types
  • Pump operation
  • Read pump curves
  • Recirculation
