Pumps, Compressors and Valves are major equipment in all petrochemical, refinery and petroleum firms. Understanding the function, operation, and troubleshooting of these equipment's is a must to maintain the production and maximizing the profitability of the plant. Right specification and appropriate selection of these equipment increases the plant reliability, reduces the downtime and operating and maintenance costs. This course will discuss these three major equipment and cover different aspects that the involved engineers and technician involved to master.
