This course is useful for engineers involved in designing systems using centrifugal pumps. The principles explained here are applicable to many industries including chemical processing, water, and wastewater treatment. The student is expected to already have a basic understanding of NPSH and how to calculate losses in suction piping. Definitions for these key terms and concepts will be reviewed at the beginning.

This course will explain two design objectives for avoiding cavitation damage, hydraulic noise, and the maintenance expenses associated with these problems:

  • Deliver fluid to the pump suction at a pressure that avoids cavitation damage
  • Deliver fluid to the pump suction that has a uniform flow distribution

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • A better and more practical understanding of NPSH available and NPSH required
  • The tools to make better judgments on a safe margin between NPSH available and NPSH required
  • The ability to make wise suction piping design choices that produce uniform flow at the pump inlet

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 20 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
