Max Height suction pump cavitation and NPSH
This suction height plays a key role in the power of the pump and can not exceed a certain height (due to cavitation). When the maximum height is reached, may be placed an intermediate pump , or pressurize the suction tank, or reducing the temperature of the fluid ...The maximum suction height depends on the saturated vapor pressure of the fluid and therefore the temperature and ambient pressure.
The practical maximum suction height is located around 7 meters at ambient temperature.
With Mecaflux standardIn pump systems / turbines, suction height, updating the parameters of power interface and raises the alert cavitation if the network or pump generates cavitation:
