ILDÁNA provides an array of mainly technical / engineering training courses and consultancy services to the public and private sectors throughout the island of Ireland.
The various members of the ILDÁNA team are recognised as subject-matter-experts in their respective fields. ILDANÁ's trainers have years of practical experience and ensure that each course is up-to-date technically, well managed and consistently well-presented with clearly identified aims and learning opportunities.
This course will give the participants a sound understanding of how pumps work, a systematic approach to pump selection, to be aware of problems and improve the operation of the pumping system.
While the mechanical engineer may be the primary pump owner, this course will also be of interest to the control systems and electrical engineers as they are often called to sort out pump trip outs and other failures. The course will also cover pump house and foundation requirements as well as optimum piping arrangement.
