Delegates were drawn exclusively from oil & gas related industries.
150kW motor termination kits with a difference!
This was the subject of a Root Cause Analysis (RCA). Retraining of the artisans responsible for the installation resulted from this investigation.
Poorly positioned non return valve in a hydro electric scheme in West Africa.
The standard manufacturer recommendation is 4 - 5 X D away from any source of turbulence, in this case the elbow and the pump.
Ballast pump in an offshore oil rig
Project called for a Root Cause Analysis (RCA) into the repeated failure of these units. Running induction motors off generators is always problematic. Careful attention must be paid to the protection and control circuitry!
Fitting gauges to a pump
The end-user was sceptical that the recently installed end suction pumps were operating to the published curve. An audit of the system showed good pump performance but a steeper than anticipated system head curve.
Data capture during a system energy audit
Shutting down one of the two operating pumps had no negative effect on the cooling circuit. Energy savings: $US 14 000 per annum.
Wear ring seized onto a multistage pump's impeller
JTA was tasked with conducting an RCA into the failure of a 1,3MW 6,6kV submersible multistage mine dewatering pump. Root cause of failure was ingress of a hard (metallic) object into the lower bearing.
In-house pumping system course
This was a group of young engineers from an oil and gas company in Malaysia. The content was pumping systems in the offshore hydrocarbon industry.
Valves public course: Shanghai China
Delegates were drawn from the shipbuilding (LNG carriers) Oil & gas, plant automation and chemical industries. This is the second valves program presented by JTA in China.
Axially split pump in Germany
There is no second chance to make a first impression. The first impression here was the cleanliness and space to work and operate!
