  • How centrifugal pumps work
  • How to read a Theoretical Pump Curve (TPC)
  • Dredge pump efficiency and how it affects HP requirements
  • Types of excavators and their advantages/disadvantages
  • Pipeline size, velocity, friction and production
  • Reading and interpreting gauges

Charles Johnson has been in the industry for more than 20 years, and has had the opportunity to teach the Dreducation Class to more than 100 students. In addition to this class, Mr. Johnson also provides individual training for customers at their facilities throughout the year.

The Dreducation Class will be held at the Omni Royal Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana. The registration cost

of $425 includes lunch and all program materials. Contact Linda DeFoe at lldefoe@dscdredge.com or by phone at (985) 479-8032 to register and get hotel room information.
