The Hydraulic Institute Introduces New Rotodynamic Pumps Webinar for Vibration Measurement and Allowable Values


The Hydraulic Institute, in collaboration with Jack Claxton of Patterson Pump Company and associated HI committee members, has developed a new webinar series focused on rotodynamic pumps for vibration measurements and allowable values.

Designed for pump distributors, manufacturers and end users, this technical online program delves into the measurement made on non-rotating (bearing housings) of rotodynamic pumps, providing in-depth information on maximum allowable vibration values and acceptance tests. If you or your customers use centrifugal or vertical pumps in clear water, solids handling, or in slurry pump applications, this webinar will be useful for factory (vibration) acceptance tests as well as field vibration testing.

Jack Claxton, well-known industry engineering expert who has worked at Patterson Pump Company for 39 years, will serve as course instructor. “I am pleased to work with the Hydraulic Institute and associated committees to develop this important course for the pump industry,” notes Claxton. “It is important for engineers who work with pumps to understand vibration measurement and allowable values to ensure optimum pump performance.”

The new rotodynamic pumps webinar will be conducted on Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 1:00-2:00pm EDT. Cost is just $99.00, with HI members receiving an additional 25% discount, along with attending earning one (1) PDH credit after the conclusion. HI also offers corporate group webinar site licensing for the lowest prices in training larger groups.

As this live, online series is only offered periodically through this year, the sign up deadline is noon on May 8, 2014.
