New Positive Displacement (PD) Pumps Certificate Program Provides Overview on Technology, Pump Selection and Application

One of two basic pump types (rotodynamic or centrifugal being the other), a positive displacement pump is a constant torque, direct acting device that moves fluid through pressurization.  Choosing between a centrifugal or positive displacement pump for an application requires an understanding of pump types. 

A new Positive Displacement (PD) Pumps Certificate Program from the Hydraulic Institute provides a basic overview of this technology. This program covers these critical areas:

Module 1: Why Positive Displacement Pumps?

Module 2: Positive Displacement Hydraulics

Module 3: Fundamentals, Design & Applications of Rotary Pumps

Module 4: Fundamentals, Design & Applications of Reciprocating/Rotary Pumps

Module 5: Fundamentals, Design & Applications of Controlled Volume Metering Pumps

The PD Pumps Certificate Program is ideally suited for engineers, designs, maintains, installs, manufactures, specifies, sells, distributes or consults on pumps. The program offers five professional development hours and a certificate of completion from the Hydraulic Institute.  Attendees must have a fundamental understanding of pumps and hydraulic technology.

HI also recommends the Pump System Assessment (PSA) Program that provides an understanding of how centrifugal pumps operate within the system, which is essential to the pump system assessment process.  As just improving a single pump’s efficiency will do little to reduce pump energy usage, system optimization must look at how all pump components work together and how changing one can help improve the value of the entire application solution.
