Liquid Nitrogen Pumping

Liquid Nitrogen PumpingWhile there are many different types and layouts of nitrogen units, they all work on similar principles. This course is aimed at offering a general understanding of these principles and the methods involved in how to safely operate a liquid nitrogen pump.

In this module we will look at the various components of a liquid nitrogen pump and the hazards involved during its operation.

Approximate course duration: 65 minutes.

Module Two

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  • Describe the cool down procedure
  • Identify the importance of critical pressure and temperature trip devices
  • Recognise some of the symptoms of poor pump performance and the effects this can have on equipment reliability and pump discharge criteria
  • Describe the relationship between pump rates, pressures and temperatures

Approximate module duration: 25 minutes.

Module One

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  • Identify the function of the nitrogen pumping components on a pump unit
  • Describe the process of pumping and vaporising liquid nitrogen
  • Define the importance and means of cooling and priming a pumping system
  • Explain how and why heat is generated and the procedures through which it is controlled

Approximate module one duration: 40 minutes.
