BPMA introduces new pump repair training course

26 February 2021

The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) has added a new course to its training programme to address the area of pump maintenance and repair. 

The course was developed under the guidance of Gary Wilde, BPMA’s technical services officer, with the help of a dedicated Working Group, comprising BPMA member companies.

This planned two-day classroom & hands-on training course has been designed to provide he essential knowledge relating to pump repairs and maintenance. It is suitable both for the novice technician looking for the core fundamentals of pump repair, as well as the experienced technician seeking skills improvement or simply to act a knowledge refreshment.

This course will consider the implications of repair and replacing a part with a partial or complete overhaul. The importance of building in a scheduled or preventative maintenance routine that will help prolong the life of a system and help to eliminate costly downtime problems.

A repair simply replaces whatever component or components failed whereas an overhaul begins with a complete inspection and restores the machine to OEM standards or better.

The course will cover health & safety needs in the workshop & onsite; how to repair equipment to manufacturers specifications; considerations when looking to fit a variable speed drive; typical pump troubleshooting requirements; cavitation and testing.

The course will be CPD-approved, in line with all the other training offered by the BPMA, and its first delivery is scheduled for 23rd & 24th June 2021.
