Flowserve

The Institute for Industry-Education Collaboration at McNeese State University is proud to be the Gulf Coast Flowserve Satellite training site. At this training facility, practicing engineers and technicians will receive specialized hands-on training in pumps, valves and seals. 

Current course offerings:

Mechanical Seal Fundamentals
March 4-6, 2014, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course explains the basic need for mechanical seal systems and the theory behind how they work. Emphasis is placed not only on the operation of mechanical seals, but also on the environments where they operate (pump or other equipment) and the support systems that help them survive. Additional topics include materials of construction, fluid properties that affect seal selection, seal specifications and reading seal drawings. Class time accounts for approximately 60% of the total, with the remainder spent on laboratory exercises. Students will assemble and disassemble pumps and seals as well as operate pumps and monitor performance. Both team and individual hands-on exercises are included.

Centrifugal Pump Fundamentals
April 15-17, 2014, 8:00 am -5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course provides an in-depth understanding of Centrifugal Pump Fundamentals. The course is designed to provide a detailed explanation of how a centrifugal pump is constructed and operated to achieve maximum reliability. Selecting the right pump for a specific application and identification of problems associated with pump operation are determined through the use of pump curves and hydraulic calculations.  To register for this course: www.pumptraining.com


Pump & Mechanical Seal Basics
July 29 - 30, 2014, 8:00 am 5:00 pm
$1,250, 1.6 CEU

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to understand the basics of pump and mechanical seals. The course curriculum is designed to provide a basic explanation of the parts of the pump and mechanical seal and how they function together to achieve maximum reliability.  To register for this course: www.pumptraining.com

Pump and Mechanical Seal Principles
November 18-20, 2014, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$1,250, 2.4 CEU

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to understand the basics of pumps, pumping systems and mechanical seals. The course curriculum is centered on pump and mechanical seal design, operation and maintenance, and is made up of approximately 60% classroom and 40% laboratory time. Concepts and theory are taught in a classroom setting and then reinforced with hands-on exercises in the laboratories. Participants utilize the laboratories (static displays and operational pumps) to perform pump and seal settings through learning experiments. Working in teams, attendees will be involved in interactive discussions while they assemble, disassemble, test, and document a variety of operational pumps and mechanical seals.
