The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has launched its latest pump industry e-Learning program titled “Positive Displacement Pumps: Fundamentals, Design and Applications.”

The Internet-delivered educational program is designed to provide individual users with a broad, comprehensive knowledge of PD pumping technologies. The material is visual and interactive, allowing students to take full advantage of the latest learning technology.

Created by positive displacement pump experts associated with 12 separate HI member companies, the course has been developed for pump users, manufacturers and distributors, mechanical engineers, contractors, engineering consulting firms, students and others who work with pumps and pumping systems.

Content is based on HI/ANSI Standards with significant contributions from experts at HI member companies that sponsored and led the development of the course. Each module is designed for a self-paced learning experience of approximately two hours and contains extensive reference material.

The first two modules focus on PD pumps markets and applications, as well as the background and terms needed for an understanding of positive displacement pump hydraulics. Three other modules are devoted to specific positive displacement pump technology, including rotary, reciprocating and metering pumps. Product details, performance characteristics, benefits, attributes, drawings, animations and photos of pump types within each particular technology family are discussed and explained.

Self tests are available for all courses throughout each learning module to ensure that students understand the content. At the conclusion of each module, an open book test is provided to evaluate the student’s comprehension. HI offers students Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for educational courses. A test score of at least 90% allows a student to print a personalized Certificate of Completion with the number of Professional Development Hours indicated.
