The most commonly used hard limitation for pump suc tion specific speed is 11,000 (US units). This hard limi t grew out of the recommendations from a 1982 reliability study b y J.L. Hallam (Hallam 1982). Concomitant testing of the v ibration performance of an OH2 4x6-11 pump was made with imp ellers designed for different suction specific speeds (Lob anoff and Ross 1985). This study showed that all things bein g qual, a strong relationship existed between suction specifi c speed and the pump… Expand
Cavitation Influence on the Operation of a Pumping Station Rig with Variable Speed Pumps
To analyse duty points dropdown when centrifugal pumps run with cavitation on their suction side, experiments were conducted on a pumping station (PS) rig, where up to three variable speed drivenExpand
The Influence of Impeller Wear Ring Geometry on Suction Performance

Design of the hydraulic components
TLDR
This chapter deals with one-dimensional calculation procedures and design methods for impellers, volute casings, diffusers and inlet casings for hydraulic components, which provide the capability to directly manufacture the hydraulic components by NC milling, stereo lithography or other fast-prototyping processes.

Suction Capability and Cavitation
Definition of terms: “Cavitation” means the partial evaporation of liquid in a flow system. A cavity filled with vapor is created when the static pressure in a flow locally drops to the vaporExpand
Partload operation, impact of 3-D flow phenomena performance
A pump working significantly below the best efficiency flow rate is said to operate at partload. At low specific speeds this can be roughly assumed at q* 0.8 while increasingly large zones withExpand
Effects of the Cross-Sectional Area of a Volute on Suction Recirculation and Cavitation in a Centrifugal Pump
The effects of the cross-sectional area of a volute on suction recirculation and cavitation in a centrifugal pump were investigated. The pump performance and fluid flow were analyzed using bothExpand
