In pump literature, much has been written and continues to be written about NPSH (Net Positive Suction Head) and cavitation. As career pump engineer,
A word on the terminology: Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) is the sum of the total static plus kinetic pressure minus the liquid vapor pressure, at
The terminology of a technical subject is key to understanding it. The language of modern pump technology has evolved for well over a hundred years.
Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) is perhaps the most misunderstood concept in pumping technology. The main source of confusion stems from multiple
