Cornell Pump School

In 1949, Clint Warren started travelling around the country giving lectures on applied hydraulics. These lectures evolved into the Cornell Pump School: two days of seminars covering topics of interest to people in the pump industry. Participants rate Cornell’s Pump School highly for content, instructor knowledge, and relevance to their job. Over 12,000 participants trained so far!

Regular topics at pump school include basic hydraulics, pump selection & application, installation & care, and troubleshooting. Additional topics are selected to present based on attendee feedback and suggestions from our experts. In the past these topics have included metallurgy, materials of construction, motors, slurry applications, and agriculture applications.

Here’s what attendees had to say about the 2017 Pump School:

“I enjoyed learning more about pump curves and also the factory tour. Seeing the shear mass of the building and the equipment you have was impressive.”

“Many topics presented, and topics covered give enough information that one could be pointed in the right direction to investigate something further if one so wishes.”

“Diverse topics that all applied to the overall topic. Clear and good definitions of how TDH was calculated and other factors used when sizing or looking for specific pumps. Also learning all the terminology helped understand the rest of the seminar.”

“The availability to choose your classes depending upon your experience. Also being able to go from one class focus to another and not being stuck in one class track.”

“I have been recommending your school to the pump venders in the area, I think they could use you school. I was impressed with the employees, the organization and the hospitality. I have always like Cornell pumps, now I know why. It is a great company. Thank you!”
