Electric submersible pumps are essential tools in any hire fleet, but the nature of the industry means that they are often used and abused while on hire.
Matthew Hill, Director of Obart Pumps developed a training course intended to benefit individuals in workshops of tool and plant hire companies, with or without workshop experience. It was designed to suit companies that operate a hire fleet of Tsurumi pumps, but the knowledge gained could be applied to other brands. This took place at Stewart Plant Sales’ training centre in Glasgow, over the course of 5 days.
During the course, trainees were able to understand and identify causes of wear and damage, carry-out routine maintenance and repairs, salvage used parts, select new parts and PAT test correctly. The course also covered troubleshooting on site and point of off-hire checks. Completion of the course enabled the trainee to operate, manage and maintain a reliable hire fleet of 110-volt submersible pumps up to the motor size of 0.75kW. Each session finished with a live demonstration by Matthew in the workshop, where he inspected, dismantled and reassembled hire-fleet pumps brought in by the trainees. Certificates of completion of the course were awarded at the end.
Feedback was very positive, with all agreeing how simple Tsurumi pumps were to work on, how well built they are, and that the course was very useful and easy to follow.
Matthew plans to roll out the training nationwide, benefitting owners of Tsurumi pumps on their hire fleets across the UK.
