My technical division will be hosting a 2 day seminar on the 1st and 2nd September, 2016. It is worth 13 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Anwar Ahmad.
During this Fluid Mechanics: Impacts on Line, Pump, and Compressor Sizing course, there will be overview on the impacts of the fluid mechanics while executing line, pump, and compressor sizing by considering design, operational, and maintenance perspective. Appropriate sizing of all these are very important because of the operating cost where there might be damages to the piping, pump(s), and compressor(s) during operation if it is not properly designed. The impact mainly will give impacts due to the vibration which lead to cavitation and vice versa. Furthermore, properly sized of line sizes, pump(s), and compressor(s) can reduce the turn-down time for maintenance as no issues pertaining to vibration and cavitation which may avoid from frequent changing of the parts for both pump(s) and compressor(s). Codes and Standards applicable for the sizing of line, pump, and compressor will be discussed which may affect upstream and/or upstream equipment of the system(s).
- Fundamental of Fluid Mechanics
- Line, Pump, and Compressor Sizing and Correlation among Line, Pump, and Compressor with respect to Fluid Mechanics
- How does Fluid Mechanics will affect to the operating cost of the plant?
- How does flow characteristics will affect to the line, pump, and compressor sizing?
- How to perform hydraulic calculation for new plant and How to evaluate hydraulic calculation for existing facilities especially for revamp study and the impacts of Fluid Mechanics from operational perspective;
- considerations to be considered during design stage
- Lesson learnt from previous projects on line, pump, and compressor sizing from both design and operational perspectives.
