New Rotodynamic Pumps Certificate Program Provides Overview on Technology, Pump Selection and Application

Rotodynamic is the main family under which centrifugal pumps reside.   One of two basic pump types (in addition to positive displacement), a centrifugal pump is a variable torque device that uses an impeller and volute casing to create a partial vacuum and discharge pressure to move water through a casing. Choosing between a centrifugal or positive displacement pump for an application requires an understanding of pump types. 

A new Rotodynamic Pump  Certificate program from the Hydraulic Institute provides a basic overview of this technology.  This program covers these critical areas:

Module 1: Introduction to Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pumps

Module 2: Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pump Construction

Module 3: Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics

Module 4: Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pump Performance Characteristics

Module 5: Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pump Selection & Application

The Rotodynamic 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) Certificate 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.
