CD-ROMs and Software
Centrifugal Pump Repair: Principles and Troubleshooting - This lesson introduces the components and operating principles of a typical centrifugal pump.  Normal operating conditions for the pump are described and guidelines for troubleshooting excessive leakage, excessive temperature, and loss of capacity/loss of head are provided.
Centrifugal Pump Repair: Disassembly, Inspection, and Reassembly - This lesson demonstrates how to disassemble, inspect, and reassemble a typical end-suction pump.  The locations and functions of pump components are described as well as procedures for measuring and inspecting pump parts, and the steps for checking impeller clearance.  General guidelines for installing a mechanical seal are also provided.
Industrial Hydraulic Power: Hydraulic Pumps, Pumping Principles, and Accumulators - This CD-ROM covers hydraulic pumps and accumulators.  The lesson shows and explains the functions of pumps in hydraulic systems and the operating principles of different types of pumps.  Common maintenance procedures performed on pumps, procedures for inspecting and monitoring pump efficiency, operating principles of different types of accumulators, and pre charging accumulators are also covered.
Centrifugal Pumps - Video covers centrifugal pumps, preoperational checks, valve lineup and venting, start-up and loading, graphing pump characteristics, cavatation, air binding, and pump shutdown procedure.
Centrifugal Pumps, Part 1 - First video in this set provides students a pump description and information on pump maintenance, disassembling the casing, removing the rotating element, inspecting the casing, and disassembling the rotor.
Centrifugal Pumps, Part 2 - Part two covers measuring packing sleeves, measuring impellers and wearing rings, measuring the shaft, inspecting seal and bearing parts, and measuring bearing oil clearance.
Centrifugal Pumps, Part 3 - Part three covers assembling the rotor, installing the rotor, measuring sleeve bearing oil clearance, and assembling the bearings.
Centrifugal Pumps, Part 4 - This final part covers assembling the casing, tightening casing studs and/or bolts, installing packing, and test operating the pump.
Packing and Seals, Part 1 - Video will teach you how to remove conventional valve packing, install valve packing, remove chevron packing, install preformed chevron packing, and how to perform graphite ring packing.
Packing and Seals, Part 2 - The second video in this set covers fabricating graphite ring packing, removing pump packing, installing pump packing, removing, disassembling, and inspecting a mechanical seal, assembling and installing a mechanical seal, and types of mechanical seals.
Positive Displacement Pumps - Topics include positive displacement pumps; principles of operation; preoperational checks; start-up; periodic checks; shutdown; reciprocating pumps.
Pump and Compressor Maintenance Video Set - This 13 tape series covers centrifugal pumps, air compressors and blowers, centrifugal air compressors, and packing and seals.
Specialized Centrifugal Pumps - Video covers pump disassembly, shaft and bearing removal, shaft and impeller inspection, pump reassembly, setting pump impeller clearance, mechanical seal installation, and setting vertical pump impeller clearance.
Troubleshooting Centrifugal Pumps - Video covers troubleshooting steps and diagrams, bearings, gland leakage, and pump head and capacity.
Troubleshooting Positive Displacement Pumps - Covers seal failure, knocking, and loss of capacity.
Vacuum Pumps, Air Ejectors, Strainers, and Traps - Covers vacuum pump operation, starting an air ejector, periodic checks and shutdowns, strainers, putting a standby basket into operation, cleaning the strainer basket, and steam traps.
Training Aids
ANSI Pump Cutaway - This sectioned industrial centrifugal pump allows for convenient classroom training in the operation, construction and maintenance of this common piece of process equipment.
Charge Pump Circuit Design - The first-ever guide to designing and implementing charge pumps for today's low-cost, high-performance mobile devices.
A Millwright's Guide to Motor Pump Alignment - This second edition is the result of over 38 years of hard work and many thousands of hours of writing, testing, retesting, and testing again the alignment related formulas the author has developed on his own.
Fluid Mechanics with Engineering Applications - This book is for civil engineers that teach fluid mechanics both within their discipline and as a service course to mechanical engineering students.
Handbook of Pumps and Pumping - Written by an experienced engineer, this book contains practical information on all aspects of pumps including classifications, materials, seals, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
Incompressible Flow Turbomachines - The primary purpose of this book is to provide an integrated overview of incompressible flow turbomachines and their design, in this case pumps and turbines.
Practical Pumping Handbook - This book is a practical account of pumping, piping and seals starting with basics and providing detailed but accessible information on all aspects of the pumping process and what can go wrong with it.
Predictive Maintenance of Pumps Using Condition Monitoring - This book shows how condition monitoring can be applied to detect internal degradation in pumps so that appropriate maintenance can be decided upon based on actual condition rather than arbitrary time scales.
Profile of the International Pump Industry - The report includes a detailed five-year review of mergers and acquisitions, and a Top 20 Table, ranking the leading pump manufacturers by estimated pump sales.
Pump Application Desk Book - This fully updated guide will help you solve the problems associated with all types of pump applications.
