news item image
The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) – the organisation which represents the business interests of UK and Irish suppliers of liquid pumps and pump related equipment – has added a new course to its training programme.
Addressing the increasingly important area of pump maintenance and repair, and to better meet the requirements of its members, the course was developed under the guidance of Gary Wilde, BPMA’s technical services officer, with the help of a dedicated working group, comprising AESSEAL, Altecnic, Eriks, NOV, Secure Meters, Siemens, WEG, Wilo UK and Xylem UK.
This planned two-day classroom and hands-on training course has been designed to provide attendees with the essential and generic knowledge of pump repairs and maintenance.
It is suitable for the novice technician, looking for the core fundamentals of pump repair, as well as the experienced technician seeking skills improvement or simply to act a knowledge refreshment.
This course considers the implications of repair and replacing a part with a partial or complete overhaul. The importance of building in a scheduled or preventative maintenance routine that will help prolong the life of a system and help to eliminate costly downtime problems.
A repair simply replaces whatever component or components failed whereas an overhaul begins with a complete inspection and restores the machine to OEM standards or better.
The course will be CPD Approved, in line with all the other training offered by the BPMA, and its first delivery is scheduled for 23 and 24 June.
