Assembly & Maintenance Exercise: Centrifugal Pump

Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  Centrifugal pumps are rotodynamic pumps and operate normally primed. They are in widespread use, and are deployed primarily in the pumping of water. Their applications include use in shipbuilding, the process industries and in water supply systems. They are compact and relatively simple in design. The water is conveyed by centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the pump impeller. Standard pumps are - as the term suggests - standard items. As a result they are relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain. In the lifecycle of a pump, maintenance and repair work is usually required as in many cases pumps are not considered as pure replacement items.
  The MT 180 kit forms part of the GUNT assembly, maintenance and repair practice line designed for training at technical colleges and in company training centres. A close link between theory and practice is key to the learning content. The kit is ideally suited to project based learning with a particular emphasis on ‘hands-on’ work. Independent working by the students is assisted and encouraged. Learning in a small team offers a useful learning format.
  MT 180 enables a typical standard centrifugal pump to be assembled and maintained. Students become familiar with all the pump components and their modes of operation. The parts are clearly laid out in a tool box. Systematic assembly and disassembly of a pump is practiced.

  The instructional  material details the individual steps involved in the exercise, and provides additional information on the areas of application, mode of operation and design of the pump.

Learning Objectives / Experiments

- design and function of a centrifugal pump and its
- assembly and disassembly for maintenance and
  repair purposes
- replacing components (e.g. seals or bearings)
- troubleshooting, fault assessment
- planning and assessment of maintenance and
  repair operations
- reading and understanding engineering drawings
  and operating instructions

* Practical exercise on the assembly and maintenance
  of a standard centrifugal pump1
* Comprehensive and well-structured instructional
