Standard Details

Scope of Standard: Today’s higher speed, higher energy density pumps might not achieve acceptable service life without an adequate NPSH Margin that ensures pumps operate without excessive vibration and cavitation. ANSI/HI 9.6.1 serves as a guideline for NPSH margin for rotodynamic pumps with absorbed power levels up to 5300 hp and impeller tip speeds less than 130 feet per second. The purpose of this guideline is to establish recommended net positive suction head available (NPSHA) above the published NPSH required (NPSHR) that will lead to acceptable pump performance and service life. What You Will Learn/Overall Benefits: Understand why it is essential to specify an appropriate NSPH Margin Know requirements of pump design to ensure performance (i.e. pumps sensitive to water react differently in cold water vs. oil) Learn about the negative aspects of specifying an excessive NPSH Margin Applicable Markets: This standard applies to all markets worldwide. Specific recommendations are provided for the following applications: Petroleum (hydrocarbon) process pumps Chemical process pumps Electric power plant (non- nuclear) pumps Nuclear power plant pumps Water/wastewater pumps Pulp and paper stock pumps Building services Slurry pumps Oil and gas industry pumping applications General industrial pumping applications Click the "More Details" tab above for additional product information.
