HI Webinar Series covers effective pump intake design.

Press Release Summary:

Feb 12, 2016 - Starting March 3, Hydraulic Institute will be offering 4-part webinar series on Effective Pump Intake Design and Troubleshooting Problem Intakes. Series is based on ANSI/HI 9.8-2012 Intake Design for Rotodynamic Pumps standard. In addition to overview of design objectives, webinar will cover required inlet bell design diameter, submergence requirements, and using the standard for proper instructions on intake structures for clear liquids and solids-handling pumps.

Hydraulic Institute Offers Webinar on Effective Pump Intake Design

Press release date: Feb 10, 2016

Parsippany, NJ  –The Hydraulic Institute will be offering a 4 part webinar series on Effective Pump Intake Design and Troubleshooting Problem Intakes. The first session will be launching Thursday March 3rd.

This webinar series is based off of the Hydraulic Institute’s Intake Design for Rotodynamic Pumps (ANSI/HI 9.8-2012) and will visually aid the standard’s overview of design objectives, required inlet bell design diameter, submergence requirements, using the standard for proper instructions on intake structures for clear liquids and solids-handling pumps, highlights of key technologies used when designing the pump intake including physical and computation fluid dynamics (CFD). Key learning objectives to take away from this webinar series are to identify issues and considerations when designing a pump intake, highlight tools that are available to the engineer, and how to use the standard effectively and comply with the industry regulations. Design engineers, research laboratory specialists, engineering contractors, consulting engineers, trainers, maintenance staff, and end user operators will benefit from the information provided in this webinar series.

The series will cover the following topics:
