Centrifugal Pumps: Reassembly & Installation

Centrifugal Pumps: Reassembly & Installation is part five of the Centrifugal Pumps five-part training series.

The course focuses on the reassembly, installation, and start-up of centrifugal pumps. It allows students to view the progression of a pump reassembly, including the safety precautions. It covers inspection of components and replacement parts, including mechanical seals and compression packing. Reassembly also includes checking internal clearances, rigging, mounting, and alignment. Finally, precautions to take during start-up, monitoring an operating pump, and adjustments to be made after start-up are discussed.

Course objectives include:

  • Identify the necessary precautions to take during reassembly, installation, and start-up of a centrifugal pump
  • Describe proper inspection and installation of components
  • Recognize the precautions and procedures for rigging a pump in place
  • Identify soft foot and start-up valve alignment, post start-up checks, and compression packing adjustments.
