NEW: Rotodynamic Pumps: Guidelines for NPSH Margin Webinar Session

Description: The Hydraulic Institute has collaborated with Bruce Ticknor III, P.E., Director of Engineering, National Pump Company, and associated HI committee members to launch a new technical webinar program that focuses on NPSH and its relationship to cavitation and other pump operation.  No end user or pump supplier wants to experience the issues associated with lack of NPSH such as increased noise and vibration due to cavitation, beginning of head or efficiency drop, and eventual damage to pump impeller or casing. 

This NPSH webinar will provide participants with a method to calculate the available NPSH, understand how insufficient NPSHA will affect pump operation and what NPSH margin is needed to ensure good performance longevity to pump equipment. For more information about the session please contact Andrea Kucker, Education and Marketing Operations Specialist, Hydraulic Institute, at 973.267.9700 x202 or akucker@Pumps.org. Earn 1 PDH credit for participating in this session.
