Why Attend This Training Course?
Many aspiring chemical engineers enter industry after university study without sufficient practical knowledge about how to properly size pumps. A number of recent articles provide useful guidelines for sizing and selecting pumps, but these articles focus on certain specific aspects of proper pump sizing, while leaving out others. In this training course, all chemical engineering literature will be fully-covered and other essential aspects of pump sizing and selection — including the viscosity correction, power consumption, commercial availability and lifecycle cost analysis.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts.
