Selection and Design of Pumping Stations and Lift Stations

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Solve basic pumping system design problems including considerations for installation, operation and maintenance
  • Select the most suitable equipment for your application and the ability to write practical specifications
  • Maximize effective operational procedures and optimize use of system controls
  • Reduce your maintenance problems and enhance system protection
  • Prepare condition assessments and recommend upgrades to increase capacity

Design criteria for water and wastewater pumping systems including the capacity to deal with variable flow rates and types, floatable objects, large solids and abrasive materials. The outcome of the design should be a suitable pumping system comprising efficient equipment, a cost-effective installation, smooth operation, and minimum downtime with normal maintenance. The hands-on design problems that you solve in this seminar/workshop under instructor guidance will enhance your understanding of design procedures.

You will learn to select the most suitable equipment for your application, appreciate the effectiveness of the design on installation, operation and maintenance.
