AFT to Co-Host Three Hydraulic Institute Webinars

Three Hydraulic Institute Webinars

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., USA,  July 24, 2019 --  Applied Flow Technology has partnered with the Hydraulic Institute to co-present three webinars covering general basics of hydraulic modeling to moderately intensive waterhammer and pulsation analysis and mitigation. Hydraulic Institue Webinars are $90 for members / $119 for non-members. The webinars will last approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes allowed for Q&A. Participants of the live sessions will earn one (1) PDH credit. 

Fundamentals of Pulsation Dampening
Tue Jul 30th 11:00am - 12:00pm (MDT)

Presented by Trey Walters, P.E., President of Applied Flow Technology, and Greg Duncan, Vice President of Innovation & Engineering, BLACOH. This webinar will discuss Pumps and Pulsation, Pulsation Dampeners, Charge Valve Options, Primary and Secondary Criteria for Dampener Specification, Effect of Pulsation and Vibration on Piping Systems, How Analysis is Accomplished, and Typical Solutions for Vibration Problems. Participants of the live sessions will earn one (1) PDH credit.

Fundamentals of Waterhammer & Surge Suppression 
Tue Aug 6th 11:00am - 12:00pm (MDT)

Presented by AFT's President Trey Walters, P.E., and Frank Smith of BLACOH, this webinar will discuss the four stages of waterhammer, communication time, types of dampeners, effects on pumps and valves, transient cavitation, and surge suppression methods. Participants of the live sessions will earn one (1) PDH credit.

Fundamentals of Hydraulic Flow Modeling
Thu Aug 8th 11:00am - 12:00pm (MDT)

Ben Keiser of AFT will co-present the basics of hydraulic flow modeling and analysis, including its benefits and uses. Participants will learn:
  • The benefits of using hydraulic modeling software
    -Basic inputs required
  • What hydraulic modeling can and can’t tell you
  • What are models solving? How does that relate to the software as a tool?
  • What is analysis software and why use it? What are you solving?
    -What kinds of things can you do with flow analysis, what can it help you with, types of problems
    -Review case studies
