Compared to clean fluids, the design of slurry pumping systems is considerably more complex, so with this in mind KASA Redberg have announced they will offer slurry pumping courses in October.
Taking place in Brisbane on the 15th and 16th October, and Perth on the 18th and 19th October, the purpose of these slurry pumping courses is to provide information and guidance on the design of slurry pumping and piping.
This will allow practicing engineers to design slurry systems in-house and equip them with the terminology necessary to consult with specialist slurry consultants and slurry pump manufacturers.
With a focus on the practical aspects of slurry flow, KASA Redberg notes that the slurry pumping courses are classed as an advanced level course due to:
the higher level of hydraulics theory presented when compared to KASA’s fundamentals seminars; and
the level of engineering mathematics understanding required in some calculations and first-principle proofs.
To gain the maximum benefit from the courses, delegates should be familiar with basic hydraulics theory and have some previous exposure to slurry systems.
A degree or diploma qualification in a relevant technical discipline such as mechanical, chemical or mining engineering would also be beneficial.
These slurry pumping courses are recommended for:
- consulting engineers
- process engineers
- design Engineers
- project engineers
- slurry pump and piping sales representatives; and
- anyone who needs to select, specify, commission, install and/or troubleshoot slurry pumping equipment and slurry piping.
