Webinar details

This webinar covers the application of centrifugal pumps in the industries and the recent technological advancements in the centrifugal pump applications. Centrifugal pumps are among the most commonly used pump types in various industrial and commercial applications, primarily due to their simplicity, efficiency, and versatility. They operate on the principle of centrifugal force: converting the kinetic energy of fluid into pressure energy. Many centrifugal pump configurations have been developed for different applications, including single- or multi-stage, axial or radial split, and horizontal or vertical rotor position.

Pump manufacturers and industries have continuously worked on improving the performance efficiency of centrifugal pumps especially in process optimization and cavitation detection. This webinar will cover current improvements in centrifugal pump design and applications which include the use of Internet of Things (IoT) to develop smarter pumps, use of 3D printing in pump manufacturing, use of advance materials in pump components and use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) for pump design and testing.
