Larry Bachus offers up a healthy dose of pump piping, shaft deflection, and mechanical seal failure analysis.
Our resident Pump Guy, Larry Bachus, engages with attendees during Day 2 of this week's Pump Guy Seminar in Decatur, Ala.
I pick up new and interesting information each and every time I sit in on the Pump Guy Seminar.
I read that suction pipe velocities should be in the range of 6 to 8 feet per second. Higher velocities increase the friction losses. If the NPSH criteria are met, what is wrong with higher velocities?
