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

Participants will learn and/or understand:

  • The physical factors that make up NPSH
  • The roles that NPSH availability and NPSH required play in pump performance and how they are calculated
  • NPSH testing methodology and how the results are used
  • The devastating consequences inadequate NPSH has on vertical turbine pumps
  • The differing NPSH margins based on industrial applications
    Remedies for increasing NPSH availability and decreasing NPSH required
