In almost any nuclear, chemical, or mechanical system, fluid must be transported from one place to another. Centrifugal and positive displacement type pumps are used to transfer fluid from one place to another. A basic understanding of the theory, characteristics, and mechanical components of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps are essential to understanding how they function and operate.
This 3-hour course utilizes US Department of Energy training materials (DOE-HDBK-1018/1-93, Mechanical Science, Vol. 1, Module 3) to describe the purpose, construction, and principals of operation for centrifugal and positive displacement pumps.
The course content is generic in nature. Specific information on a particular heat exchanger should be obtained directly from the manufacturer.
This course includes a True-False quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
