Pump cavitation is produced when steam cavities are created within a fluid in which forces act responding to the pressure differences.
Cavitation causes noise, damage to components and loss of performance.
The Set to Study Cavitation in Pumps, "MDU-SSCP", allows to produce the cavitation phenomenon and study its vibrational response.
The Set to Study Cavitation in Pumps, "MDU-SSCP", consists of a single-stage centrifugal pump connected to flexible tubes with a tank. It is possible to adjust different operating conditions with valves and manometers. Furthermore, it is possible to observe the inside of a pump in operation through the plastic casing.
The pump can be driven directly through an elastic coupling or the Set of Belt Drive, "MDU-SBD".
