PUMP TRAINING SYSTEM
Maintenance is an essential part of the manufacturing process, and requires specific skills. To help acquire these skills, the MZM-1006-Pumps Training System familiarizes students with maintenance tasks such as pump installation, lubrication, shaft alignment, inspection, and component replacement. Students will also learn how to start-up, operate, and troubleshoot industrial pumps in different configurations. Furthermore, during the hands-on activities they will discover the impact of valve restriction, air injection and NPSH on pumps efficiency by using a cavitation valve, a load valve, and two different water reservoirs.
To vary the speed of motor-driven pumps, the latest 3-phase AC drive is included with the trainer. Easy electrical connections between the drive and the motor can be achieved using the banana jacks on the front panel. If wiring skills must be acquired, terminal blocks are also provided for a more realistic wiring method. The control and configuration of the drive can be accomplished directly on the drive itself or using a computer software (option).
The modularity of the system permits the selection of models required to meet the training objectives.The accompanying MZM-1006 courseware correlates to the maintenance objectives to maximize educational efficiency.
