The objective of the Virtual Centrifugal Pump Lab or VCPL, is to familiarize students of pump maintenance related fields with some of the main concepts related to pump maintenance and operation. This course serves as a learning aid for pump maintenance and operation lecture and lab instruction. It will allow students to more quickly master the skills that are required to effectively operate and maintain pumps. And it will significantly reduce the cost and increase the accessibility and safety of centrifugal pump training.
