Vertical Pump Vibration

May 18, 2018

Primary Factors Affecting Vibration: Separation margin to structural natural frequency   Operating on the structural natural frequency of the discharge head motor assembly will result in unacceptable vibration levels. A field margin of +/-10% is recommended to ensure low vibration levels.   A structural natural frequency calculation or analysis (sometimes referred to as a reed […]

Structural Natural Frequency Analysis

November 28, 2017

Structural natural frequency, also referred to as reed critical frequency (RCF), is the single greatest factor which prevents excessive vibration in a vertically suspended pump. Operating close to or on a structural natural frequency will result in high vibration levels. This high vibration level can result in premature or catastrophic failure of the equipment. Key […]

Understanding Preferred and Allowable Operating Regions

July 12, 2017

The location that the pump operates on the pump curve can play a critical role in the design and evaluation of the pump. Hydraulic Institute (HI) standards recommend or define values based on which region the pump is operating in. The Rotodynamic (Centrifugal and Vertical) Pumps – Guideline for Allowable Operating Region (ANSI/HI 9.6.3-2012) defines […]

Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) Margin

June 13, 2017

When selecting a pump, it is extremely important to ensure that the net positive suction head available (NPSHA) is greater than the net positive suction head required (NPSHR) of the pump to prevent cavitation. NPSHA is the amount of absolute suction head available in feet of liquid at the first stage impeller datum minus the […]
