Next time you see someone trying to remove broken pipe fittings using the old method, show him this trick. It’s a tip that can’t be beat.
Cavitation is caused by the presence of gas bubbles under high pressure being suddenly subjected to a low pressure.
Low vacuum levels are one of the more common problems/symptoms experienced in vacuum systems
Low seal water flow can be the cause of low vacuum levels. Therefore, vacuum pumps operating at unusually higher temperatures can be a sign that requires investigation.
How often do you get a call about the vacuum pump motor tripping out?
Calcium (aka Lime) build up can cause higher horsepower consumption, reduction in pump capacity, lost production time due to locking up of the pump, and pump damage due to improper acid washings.
