Below the five different forms of cavitation. Let’s look at how to prevent each.
Try the following:
Vane Syndrome Cavitation
Preventing vane passing or vane syndrome cavitation is relatively easy. Ensure that the free space between your impeller and its housing is 4% of your impeller’s diameter or more. Any less and cavitation will begin.
Internal Re-Circulation Cavitation
In order to prevent this type of cavitation, follow this process:
This can be a tricky one to prevent. Even the smallest amount of air being sucked into the system could over time cause cavitation. Going over your installation with a fine tooth comb to make sure all joints and connections are sealed properly, is the best approach.
