AC induction motors drive approximately 90% of all pumps. An ever-growing portion of pump systems are now managed by variable speed control such as variable frequency drive, eddy current drive mag drive or fluid drive. As the pump, motor, and driver operate as components of the same system, understanding how they react individually and to the other can have a significant impact on your plant’s bottom line. This one-day workshop on Pumps, Motors, and Drives will discuss how the pump,…Find out more »
This one-day introductory course is designed to teach facility engineers, operators and maintenance staff how to achieve 15-25% cost savings through more effective production and use of compressed air. This Level 1 course can be taken as a stand-alone class; it is also a highly recommended prerequisite to the more intensive two-day Level 2 course, Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems, which will be held in Little Rock, AR on October 3 & 4, 2018. Calculate the energy cost of…Find out more »
Optimizing your compressed air systems can lead to higher productivity, energy savings, increased product quality and greater efficiency. This advanced training teaches you to develop a system profile and address point-of-use issues, including determining actual air quality requirements and investigating and reducing highest point-of-use pressure requirements. Collect and use data and tools to assess the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of a compressed air system; Develop and use a system profile; Implement a system maintenance program; Address air quality, highest pressure requirements…Find out more »
This course teaches you how to avoid pump failures with defined maintenance and best practices. Centrifugal pumps in the industrial sector can reach mean-times-between failures (MTBFs) ranging from 6 months to as much as 10 years. Short MTBFs can be the result of issues or parameters that “someone” either misunderstood or chose to disregard. Many pump failure incidents can be avoided or addressed before becoming problematic by establishing a well defined maintenance program and best practices. Each attendee will also…Find out more »
Virtually every industrial sector and commercial building in the U.S. uses induction motors, operating from fractional horsepower to over 10,000 horsepower. As a result of their power consumption, electric motor-driven systems in industrial settings represent approximately 29% of global and 69% of industrial electricity consumption. In the U.S. alone, energy costs to operate electric motors are estimated at $362 billion per year. This one-day workshop on Motor Systems Management will discuss the total life cycle cost factors of an induction…Find out more »
