Upcoming Webcast
Vertical Turbine NPSH
Net positive suction head (NPSH) is a key factor for plumbing engineers when specifying vertical turbine pumps. Learn the challenges of and solutions to NPSH issues. Net positive suction head (NPSH) is one of the least understood factors that impact a vertical turbine pump's performance and lifecycle. This presentation will provide:

  • An overview of the factors that impact and how to calculate NPSH availability (NPSHa) and NPSH required (NPSHr)

  • Definition of the roles that suction lift and suction head play in NPSH

  • Recommendations on how to ease NPSH issues
