IEM Shout Out – Talk on Overview of Centrifugal Pump Basic Principles: The Theory and Application 2016-11


My technical division will be hosting a talk seminar on the 12th Novembe , 2016. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Hassanazhari Ahdi.

OVERVIEW OF CENTRIFUGAL PUMP BASIC PRINCIPLES: THE THEORY AND APPLICATION shall provide the audience with the knowledge and principles of pump design, sizing, selection and performance analysis. The talk will explore the overview of basic theory and the application of the pump in the industry. The talk will be beneficial to engineers dealing with pump and will be presented in a way that is comprehensible to the engineers who are with or without the oil and gas background. The objectives of the talk are to provide exposure to the audiences on understanding of fundamental design of centrifugal pump and impact on its application.

Centrifugal pump in the oil and gas industry is a ‘must equipment’ on every plant/site and talk will answer questions that many people have, such as how important this equipment onboard, understanding the requirement and criticality of the pump within the whole system and matching those to the correct pump selection. Some highlights of the talk are back to fundamental of mathematical modeling of the centrifugal pump on various aspects of its parameters, type and material selection. These are the major factors in ensuring the selected pump match the required performance as well as the ensuring the reliability of the pump.
