Location: Albuquerque, NM
Description: This course is intended to provide engineering personnel with basic skills necessary to design and construct water and wastewater pumping facilities. The importance of integrating all elements of pumping system design including data development, planning, pumps, motors, controls, pipelines, electrical systems, operation and maintenance will be emphasized. The logic and thought process of design will be highlighted through presentations of pumping system designs typical of IHS construction projects e.g. booster stations, circulating pumps, lift stations. Current computer modeling programs for piping network analysis will also be presented.
Learning Outcomes: • Review water and sewer system hydraulics, pump theory, basic electricity and power and apply these concepts to pumping system design and operation • Identify design criteria and factors that influence successful design and operation • Learn common pump, motor, and control nomenclature and be able to identify basic pump, motor, and control components and equipment • Develop and apply systematic troubleshooting skills to typical IHS pumping systems and control panels.
