Empowering Pumps and Flow Control Partner on the Pump Guy Seminar Training Course

Flow Control magazine and Empowering Pumps will present the Pump Guy Seminar training program, Oct. 14-16 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Led by world-renowned pumping systems expert Larry Bachus, the Pump Guy Seminar is designed to educate attendees on the fundamental principles of efficient pumping systems design, operation, and maintenance.

Bachus, author of the wildly popular textbook “Everything You Need to Know About Pumps” (included with seminar registration) and regular contributor to Flow Control magazine, has traveled the world to present the Pump Guy Seminar and consult major industries, such as oil and gas, pulp and paper, water and wastewater, mining, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, etc. Bachus brings with him 30-plus years of experience working with industrial pumping systems. His unique training style breaks down the fundamentals of pumping systems efficiency in a way that brings those “ah ha” moments to a broad range of professionals, from operations and maintenance to engineering and general management.

The Pump Guy Seminar is designed to provide process plant engineers, managers, technicians, operators, and others involved with pumping systems technical knowledge on industrial pump design, operation and maintenance. Upon completion of this training, attendees will receive a certificate for 21 Professional Development Hours and return to work equipped with the knowledge to improve plant production via reliable pump and process piping system design.
