Pump School will be running a two-day course that teaches pump theory as well as hands-on assembly.  There will be live testing and performance generation (head-capacity, power, efficiency), and attendees will read and understand pump performance curves: single pump, parallel operation of bank of pumps. 

Other features of the course:

 - hands-on exercises on setting of mechanical seals: component versus cartridge types
 - learn about seals versus packings versus seal-less
 - bearings and lubrications: oil versus grease, mist, forced lubes
 - pumps on-line real time efficiency monitoring and vibrations tracking (overall and full spectral)
