New to pump engineering

New to pump engineering

New to pump engineering

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some source material I can read about for pump design and maintenance (including what to look out for inspecting a pump being diagnosed for problems, being reinstalled, what checks engineers should do, etc.).

I'm new to pump engineering and would like to have some material to study up on to build my base knowledge (never learned pumps specifically in school).

Any help is appreciated.


RE: New to pump engineering

How about typing something into your browser, there will he enough information there to keep you reading for the next few months.

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

RE: New to pump engineering

A good starting point to your pump education:

Pump Handbook 4th Edition
by Igor J. Karassik (Author), Joseph P. Messina (Author), Paul Cooper (Author), Charles C. Heald (Author)

From <https://www.amazon.com/Pump-Handbook-Igor-J-Karass...;

I started my pump knowledge with an earlier edition of this book after attending lecture by the author Karassik over 30-years ago! I did not have the huge benefit of the Internet back then that you have now!

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
