About the Course

This 5-day interactive Compressed Air Systems, Pump Systems, and Turbines training course specialises on three system topics; compressed air, pumps, and turbines. Compressed air systems optimisation sections provide comprehensive training on maximising the efficiency, performance, and cost-effectiveness of compressed air systems. The participants will gain a deep understanding of system components, control strategies, and best practices for system design, maintenance, and energy management. It covers system assessment, leakage detection, air demand analysis, and equipment selection. Practical exercises and case studies enable participants to apply learned concepts to real-world scenarios, ultimately improving compressed air systems' overall efficiency and sustainability.

Pump systems optimisation offers in-depth training on improving pumping systems' energy efficiency and reliability. The participants will learn about pump selection, performance curves, system design, performance assessment, and energy-saving strategies. It covers pump curves, pipe sizing, control methods, and maintenance practices. Through practical exercises and case studies, participants will develop skills in analysing system performance, identifying inefficiencies, and implementing optimisation measures to reduce energy consumption, minimise downtime, and enhance overall pump system efficiency.

Furthermore, it gives the participants an understanding of turbine technology, operation, and maintenance. Participants will learn about different types of turbines, their components, their applications, performance characteristics, and efficiency optimisation techniques. It covers topics such as turbine components, control systems, troubleshooting, and maintenance best practices. Participants walk away with the knowledge and skills to manage and optimise turbine systems effectively.
