Module 3: Cavitation

Objective: To provide a general understanding of cavitation and explore the findings of the FIPR funded cavitation study.

Session A: Cavitation                       
24 minutes - R. Visintainer

  • Definition of NPSH and cavitation
  • Video of cavitation
  • Effect of cavitation and water hammer

Session B: Pit Concentration Limits and Suction Performance              
11 minutes - G. Addie

  • Pit concentration limits and suction performance
  • Benefit analysis of large impeller slow turning pump at the pit

What Does Cavitation Look Like?

Learn about cavitation in a centrifugal pump, and watch a video showing cavitation as it happens.
