Field Investigation of Cavitation and Flow Induced Vibrations In Submerged Vertical Pumps in a Power Plant

Pumping sets are common but often critical operating assets in the industry. Such pumps often do not have adequate pressure and flow instrumentation that could detect abnormal hydraulic operating conditions. This paper presents field investigations of two submerged vertical pumps with suspected cavitation and flow induced vibrations in a power plant. These pumps had a history of catastrophic impeller failures.
