Introduction:

Pumps are among the most widely used items in the world and their various designs permit their use in a large variety of applications. They are used in everything from washing machines, refrigerators, cars and trucks to construction sites, wastewater treatment facilities and food processing plants. 

Valve is one of the most basic and indispensable component of any application. It is essential to virtually all manufacturing processes and every energy production and supply system. 

Right selection, effective maintenance, inspection and troubleshooting programs and skilled staff are essential factors for prolonged pump & valve life. All the above can be achieved only via deep understanding of the pump & valve. This course is intended to provide the participants with theoretical and practical topics of pumps and valves to achieve this required understanding.
