Effective Pump Intake Design and Troubleshooting Problem Intakes: 4-Part Live Webinar Series
- Registration Closed
Effective Pump Intake Design and
Troubleshooting Problem Intakes
4-Part Live Webinar Series
This webinar series is based on the Hydraulic Institute’s Intake Design for Rotodynamic Pumps ANSI/HI 9.8 Standard. The standard enables designers, owners, and users to configure functional pumping facility designs and provides remedial measures for problem intakes. This webinar series visually aids the standard’s overview of design objectives, required inlet bell design diameter, submergence requirements, using the standard for proper instructions on intake structures for clear liquids and solids-handling pumps, highlights of key technologies used when designing the pump intake including physical and computation fluid dynamics (CFD).
Webinar content covers the following plans:
- Session 1: Intake Background, History, and Design Objectives
- Session 2: Intakes for Clear Liquids
- Session 3: Intakes of Solids-Bearing Liquids
- Session 4: CFD Modeling and Physical Modeling
Upon completion, learners should be able to:
- Be able to identify issues and considerations when designing a pump intake
- Highlight tools that are available to the engineer
- Understand how to use a standard effectively and comply with the industry regulations
