PARSIPPANY, N.J. - As part of its fall meeting, the Hydraulic Institute (HI) will offer the Pumping System Assessment Tool (PSAT) Qualification Workshop, presented in part by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The workshop will meet Oct. 19-20 at the Omni Hotel in Charlotte, N.C., preceding HI's fall meeting. Registration is open to HI members, as well as other interested parties, for $395. The deadline is Sept. 21, with a class limit of 25 participants.

The PSAT program was developed to assist engineers and facility operators in conducting preliminary assessments of how efficiently their pumping systems operate. Participants will learn how to accurately acquire input data for PSAT, how to prescreen pumping systems to select the "vital" systems for further review, how to use PSAT software, the difference between measurements and requirements, and the importance of a system perspective. The class features a hands-on field measurement component, using actual pumping systems.

To prepare for the workshop, HI recommends a comprehensive knowledge of centrifugal pumps and pumping systems, as well as completion of the e-learning course "Centrifugal Pumps - Fundamentals, Design, and Applications."

Participants who complete the workshop and pass the final exam will be recognized by the DOE as a qualified pump specialist, and will be listed on the Best Practices Web site.

To register, visit HI's Web site at and click on the "members" section.
