Training course overview

This intensive Coventry Academy training course on Rotating Equipment will introduce delegates to elements of rotating equipment as encountered in oil and gas industry. Various types of gas compressors, pumps and turbines will be discussed and the importance of their vital design elements such as bearings, seals, filters, safety controls, and others, will be explained in detail.

The Rotating Equipment training course will be on the start-up and operation of these machines and their optimal maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting techniques. The training course will also highlight the guidelines for efficient and safe operation, by indicating the important elements of safety control systems.

This Coventry Academy training course will feature:

  • Principles of compressor, pump and turbine start up and operation
  • Best practices for maintenance and repair
  • Measurement and control of performance of these machines
  • Inspection and diagnosing the root cause of problems
  • Troubleshooting techniques for operational problems of pumps, compressors and turbines

What are the goals?

By the end of this Coventry Academy training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand operation of various types of compressors, pumps, and turbines
  • Operate compressors pumps and turbines close to their design efficiency
  • Monitor compressor, pump and turbine reliability and availability
  • Combine range of operation and cost effectiveness
  • Select the best operation and maintenance strategy
  • Troubleshoot compressor, pump and turbine problems

Who is this training course for?

This Coventry Academy training course is designed to benefit all levels of Technical Personnel in the oil and gas industry as well as in chemical and process industries but will greatly benefit:

  • Technical Personnel in charge of production
  • Maintenance and Operation Engineers
  • Operators
  • Supervisors
