FESTO Pumps Training System

The Pumps Training Systems familiarize students with pump operation principles and associated maintenance tasks such as pump installation, lubrication, shaft alignment, inspection, and component replacement. Students also learn how to start up, operate, and troubleshoot industrial pumps in different configurations.

Furthermore, during these hands-on activities, students discover the impact of valve restriction, air injection, and Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) on pump efficiency by using a cavitation valve, a load valve, and two different water reservoirs.

The modularity of the systems allows the selection of models required to meet customized training objectives. A wide variety of pumps are also offered as individual options. The pumps that can be added to the Pumps Training Systems correspond to the most common types found in industry. Students are introduced to the use, characteristics, and maintenance of each pump by disassembling the pump, and by measuring operating parameters.
