Download Refresher on Pump Cavitation and NPSH

* * * * - 2 Votes

Both cavitation and NPSH are terms very frequently encountered by chemical engineers during their entire career either as a design or operations engineer. Most fresh chemical engineers have some idea of these terms but are not fully conversant with the concept. Many a times there are also a lot of misconceptions about the actual meaning of these frequently encountered terms.
