Four 900-square-foot power labs feature 26 operational pumping systems, many with transparent piping and housings so participants have a real-time view of fluid motion and typical pumping system failures.
DALLAS - Flowserve Corp. launched new Learning Resource Center (LRC) instructional labs that offer hands-on technical facilities for pump, valve, and seal system optimization, and maintenance training. The LRC allows for hands-on training in a simulated plant environment that features complete pumping systems and equipment from both Flowserve and other manufacturers.

The LRC, part of Flowserve Educational Services, reports up to 50 percent of training time is spent working in the operational labs with the pump, valve, and seal systems plant professionals use every day. Courses are specifically designed to increase participants' skill levels in equipment selection, installation, repair, failure analysis, and troubleshooting. Participants return to work with practical knowledge to improve plant performance, increase machine availability, lower the cost of maintenance, and improve plant safety.

Four 900-square-foot power labs feature 26 operational pumping systems, many with transparent piping and housings so participants have a real-time view of fluid motion and typical pumping system failures. Participants also learn to create pump curves, troubleshoot cavitation problems, and perform "dead head" tests and other vital diagnostics.

"The Learning Resource Center presents another opportunity for Flowserve to help customers achieve success in their businesses," said John Jacko, chief marketing officer for Flowserve. "Utilizing equipment from Flowserve as well as other manufacturers, enables our state-of-the-art training center to create a real-world environment that demonstrates our commitment to our customers and validates Flowserve as a thought leader in the fluid motion and control industry."

Class size at the LRC is limited, providing opportunity for participants to experiment and test the "what-ifs" of the equipment they use every day, as well as ask questions, and discuss theoretical topics.
