Effective Pump Intake Design and Troubleshooting Problem Intakes: Using the standard for solids-bearing liquid intake design

Date: June 5, 2024
Time: 1pm - 2 pm EST   
PDH Credits: 1

Part-3 of 4-Part Live Webinar Bundle


This webinar provides a recap of issues and problems associated with solids-bearing liquid intake design, followed by an exploration of the use of the ANSI/HI 9.8 Intake Design for Rotodynamic Pumps Standard. It covers various intake structures for solids-bearing liquids, including circular, regular, confined wet-well, and trench-type designs, supplemented with detailed 3D renderings and plan view figures from the Standard. The session concludes with real-world field examples, a summary of key points, and a Q&A session for further discussion

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, learners should be able to:

• Gain an understanding of historical issues and problems related to intake design, including the focus on low suction velocities for clear liquids and the need for additional considerations for solids-bearing liquids, leading to the expansion of knowledge and the development of ANSI/HI 9.8 Pump Intake Design Standard. 

• Apply the Standard to design intake structures for solids-bearing liquids, including circular and rectangular intakes, confined wet-well designs, and trench-type wet-wells.

• View real-world field examples of a trench-type self-cleaning solids handling wet well to understand its practical application and effectiveness in handling solids-bearing liquids.

PDH Credits

One (1) PDH credit will be issued upon completion of this live webinar series. 

The acceptance of continuing education as it applies to fulfillment of the state licensing requirements for professional designations is at the pleasure of the individual state licensing boards. It is the responsibility of the individual participants to be knowledgeable about their state requirements.

Licensed Professional Engineers

Continuing professional development is a vital component to the engineering licensure process. Most state licensing boards require continuing professional development as a condition for licensure and renewal of the license to practice engineering. Pre-approval of training providers and courses are not required by most state licensing boards, except for the following:

Florida Board of Professional Engineers

Pump Systems Matter is a board-approved continuing education provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers: License # CEA361.

North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors

Pump Systems Matter is an approved continuing professional competency sponsor for the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors: Sponsor # S-0523.
