Pump Applications


Credits: 3
Clock Hours per Quarter: 40

AA Discipline:

Lecture Hours:20    Lab Hours:20


Description
Pump types and characteristic of different classes of pumps. Pump types will include positive and non-positive displacement pumps, with the focus of the course on non-positive styles of pumps. Piston, gear, and diaphragm positive displacement pump will be studied. Non-positive styles will include centrifugal classes, including end suction centrifugal, submersible, turbine and jet pumps. The selection and application of pumps will be analyzed. Installation practices will also be studied with a special emphasis on suction side design criteria for end suction centrifugal pump applications. Prerequisite: WTM 112 or instructor permission. Formerly WGMT 221.
