Pumps and Compressors : Design, Selection and Sizing

Pumps and Compressors : Design, Selection and Sizing


Pumps and Compressors of several types, with varying configurations and applications, are used extensively in the process industries. These machines represent a significant part of the capital and operating costs of most plants, so that optimizing their selection is of major economic importance. This five-day course is designed to provide an in-depth perspective to process pump and compressor specification, design, selection and sizing. Topics covered include pump and compressor types, terminology, operating principles, selection and sizing as well as pump hydraulics, compressor thermodynamics and vital components that need to be specified and selected for reliable long-term operation. Various pumps and compressors will be examined as to their suitability in a given service. Advantages versus disadvantages or vulnerabilities of different pump and compressor types will be discussed.



To assist in effective pump and compressor selection and procurement by enhancing participants' understanding of these machines and their systems. The course will provide the participants with a basic, as well as advanced pump and compressor technology inventory required to successfully select, size and apply this equipment. Throughout the course, participants will have ample opportunity to have equipmentrelated questions answered by the Course Director.


This course is designed for personnel involved in the specification, selection, sizing and procurement of pumps and compressors. The course would be highly valuable for EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) engineers, supervisors and reliability specialists.
