Standardized, overhung, centrifugal pumps are among the most commonly encountered components found in refineries, chemical plants, power plants, and other similar process facilities. ANSI-type standard centrifugal pumps are among the most commonly-specified pump type found in industrial applications, worldwide. Operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of these pumps are a primary responsibility for operators and maintenance technicians working in these environments.

This operational, multi-purpose, hands-on module, intended to be integrated into an optional working supply and return system, allows for a variety of maintenance activities and operational checks to be performed, realistically, by the student or student team in a realistic, plant-like environment.

A full-size 1" X 1-1/2" X 6" ANSI centrifugal pump is provided, allowing for, common maintenance activities such as alignment pre-checks, coupling/shaft alignment, leveling, oil level and condition checks, mechanical seal and/or packing installation, as well as preventive/predictive maintenance activities and checks. Additional operations-type activities can be performed such as pump start-up procedures and the monitoring/cataloging/trending of operating variables including, flow rates, pump speed, suction/outlet pressures, temperature, amperage load, as well as periodic forma/informal vibration checks, and valve position verification. All procedures are outlined in accompanying documentation, with safe work practices encouraged at each step.

Electrically, the assembly includes a three-phase reversing motor starter, hand-off-auto control station, pilot lights, system E-stop, power meter, and (8), instructor fault switches, all mounted inside and on the front panel of a NEMA type-4 enclosure.

Structurally, a welded structural steel baseplate structure allows for mounting of a variety of ANSI pump models from well-known manufacturers. The assembly can easily be leveled to match local conditions, via leveling feet. Through adjustable pipe support structures and pipe support hardware, connection to, and support of, the related optional overhead supply and return system is facilitated, along with stabilization of the assembly’s suction and discharge piping.

The primary connecting piping is steel and has been chosen in order to increase realism, and to provide a suitable, stable connecting point to the associated, optional, overhead supply and return system.

Shipped knock-down and organized for trouble-free assembly and installation, this large-scale teaching workstation will make pump-related training more realistic for both maintenance and operations trainees.
