SAMCO offers a centrifugal pump training programme designed to enhance workforce competency by providing engineers, plant operators, maintenance personnel, and anyone else who is involved in the design, selection, installation and maintenance of pumping systems, with a fundamental understanding of the different types of centrifugal pumps and systems available, as well their applications.

We are passionate about advancing knowledge through educational support that provides measurable benefits for our clients as well as their customers. One of the problems that the industry faces today is that younger engineers are expected to know everything concerning pumps and pumping problems, however, this generally only comes with years of experience. In our training programme, our certified trainers work with learners to share their accumulated experience using both theoretical and practical training methods.


Practical Centrifugal Pump Theory

The pump training programme has been formulated by combining the practical experiences that have been encountered in the sugar, paper and chemical process industries in the past to provide a comprehensive overview of all aspects of centrifugal pumps, from selection right through to troubleshooting.

Pump Types

The type of pumping system you choose will depend heavily on the application. Below is a list of just some of the pumps that SAMCO offers:

  • End Suction Pumps: A type of centrifugal pump that has a casing with the suction coming in one end and discharging out the top
  • Axial Flow Pumps: Direct flow axially using an impeller with vanes – capable of producing higher flow rates
  • Submersible Water Pumps: Specifically designed for underwater applications in which a type of centrifugal pump and motor is submerged
  • Diaphragm Pumps: Moves fluid in and out of the pump chamber by means of a flexing diaphragm
  • Centrifugal Pumps: The ideal choice for low viscosity liquids and high flow rates
  • Dosing Pumps: Allows for the delivery of fluids at precise flow rates (can be manually adjusted)
  • Hydraulic Pumps: A type of positive displacement pump used to pressurise hydraulic fluid
  • Multistage Pumps: A pump containing two or more impellers to generate higher pressures
  • Peristaltic Pumps: Transfers liquid by using positive displacement to squeeze the tube or hose as it rotates
  • Self-priming Pumps: A centrifugal pump that can use an air/water mixture to reach a fully-primed pumping condition, eliminating the need for external priming devices
  • Turbine Pumps: Vertical centrifugal pumps used to draw fluid from a deep well with a substantial rate of flow
  • Vacuum Pumps: Used to remove gas, air or water from an area in order to produce a partial vacuum
