Hydro Innovations recently opened a new training centre, called the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute, to assist its customers in the selection, troubleshooting and maintenance of centrifugal pumps.

The centre will focus mostly on self priming pumps, but aspects of the curricula offered will also include standard centrifugal and submersible pumps.

The institute covers two floors, and houses a variety of training assets.

The main attraction is a full size functioning pump station on the first floor, with suction lines running into a clear wet well system on the ground floor.

This demonstrates the self priming process very clearly through clear acrylic suction lines.

Other training assets include a glass faced pump and a full-size ‘tear-down’ pump.

The glass faced pump is a full size pump with a glass front.

This allows observers to see the inside workings of a centrifugal pump, and is capable of demonstrating a raft of troubleshooting scenarios, including air binding and pipe blockages, among others.

The ‘tear-down’ pump enables training for operators and fitters on disassembly and reassembly of a centrifugal pump, including tips on seal and bearing installation, setting pump clearances, and other key elements in repair and maintenance procedures.

The Hydro Innovations team hope that this element of operator training, along with gauge reading and troubleshooting training will help keep pumping assets at their efficient best for a long and trouble-free time.

Thanks to custom-fitted sections of transparent plastic pipes and siding, the audience can see tonnes of water flowing right past them, cycling into of the temporary reservoir/wet well before being pumped away by the Ultra-V pumps.
