Seminar S1

Volumetric metering of fluids with LEWA metering pumps

The 1.5-day seminar is intended for engineers and technicians who operate and do the planning of LEWA metering pumps.

Metering pumps are an important component in many industries that require accurate metering of fluids or liquefied gases. Training participants learn the theoretical basics of our reciprocating positive displacement pumps and how they work at our demonstration booths. Different fault behaviors and especially the influence on pulsation in case of sub-optimal design are demonstrated in the showroom. Information about controlling our pumping plants also includes special instruction on the synchronization of Triplex pumps. The seminar is completed with information on our LSM Smart Monitoring System, which can be used to detect fault conditions at an early stage, increase the availability of pumps and allow condition-oriented maintenance.
