CHANNEL CAVITATION:



Characteristic

"NEAR 1000 Hz." THIS IS NOT NOT NOT "CAVITATION" AS, THE TERM IS GENERALLY USED PUMP MANUFACTURERS, but is as used by control valve manufacturers.

DESCRIPTION

i) Short bursts
ii) High frequency
iii) Moderate to low amplitude
iv) 4:1 Dp ratio

a) CAUSE

Supply Pipe too small diam.or pump being run above design speed for the valves - valve opens too slowly, but supply pressure high enough, rolex replica once the supply column starts to replica watches uk surge forward, to bounce valve once. Strongish spring makes tiny gap before close. What we are seeing is disturbance from bubble implosions inside the pump chamber.

b) DETRIMENT

Valve seat replacement. Certainly prohibits use of swiss replica watches straight tube coriolis type mass transfer meters - which have aprox the same frequency for their excitation.

c) SOLUTION

Live with it unless above residual allowable amplitude spec. Use a run-time of PulseView. Weaken the valve springs - or - put a suction loss Preventor close to the pump so that line size back from there doesn't have to respond to instant need for mass acceleration.

d) INPUT DATA NEEDED

As many details as possible It always hinges on the DETAIL DETAIL DETAIL
