Centrifugal Pumps: Suction Pressure Limits
101031010111061030900 Centrifugal Pumps: Suction Pressure LimitsCavitation and Net Positive Suction HeadThe single most common operational problem in a process plant is loss of suction pressure to a centrifugal pump. If the suction pressure is too low, the discharge pressure and the discharge flow become erratically low. The suction pressure, while low, remains comparatively steady.
Cavitation and Net Positive Suction Head The problem described above is called
