    Fundamentals of Pulsation Dampening

    1-Part On-Demand Webinar

    Overview

    This webinar will review how reciprocating pumps start and stop flow with every revolution of the shaft, which results in system pressure pulsations that will be above and below the average.  While normal, these pulsations require care in the design of the piping system and its accessories to ensure proper pump suction pressure and reliable pump system operation.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion, participants will learn:

    • Which types of pumps create pressure/flow pulsation and why Issues/problems created by pulsation Explanation of magnitude and frequency of pulsation for various pump types
    • Pulsation dampeners general principal of operation of a pulsation dampener
    • Types of Dampeners and their pros/cons
    • Configurations and their pros/cons
    • Charge valve options
    • Primary and secondary criteria for dampener specification
    • Effect of pulsation and vibration on piping systems
    • How analysis is accomplished
    • Typical solutions for vibration problems

    Variable Frequency Drives for the Pump Industry

    3-Part On-Demand Webinar

    Overview

    Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) are a common tool for improving process and quality control and for realizing energy savings in pumping systems. This webinar series provides an overview of basic VFD technology, how VFDs interact with their controls and the motor, describes multiple application considerations, contains multiple installation considerations, and identifies how to troubleshoot basic VFD issues. The attendee will be presented with application considerations that are typically outside the boundaries of the VFD (such as the environment and the electrical system), but that have a significant influence on its selection and operation. Also covered are installation practices and troubleshooting of variable frequency drives and their proper maintenance.

    Learning Objectives: 

    Upon completion, learners should be able to:

    • Understand the benefits of variable frequency drives and the types of pumping applications that are most suitable for their use
    • Be familiar with the basic architecture of VFD systems, including AC induction motors
    • Understand the basic considerations that apply to selecting and applying a VFD in a pumping system
    • Understand how the environment (temperature, altitude, cooling, etc.) affects the selection and operation of a VFD
    • Understand how the electrical system (grounding, power quality, input/output cables, etc.) affects the selection and operation of the VFD
    • Troubleshoot the drive and electrical components and understand the likely causes of performance issues
    • Troubleshoot the motor and mechanical components and understand the likely causes of performance issues
    • Understand the key elements of VFD maintenance
