The Hydraulic Institute Announces Date for Webinar on Rotodynamic Pumps: Guidelines for NPSH Margin

Press release date: Dec 08, 2014

Parsippany, NJ – In its continuing effort to provide education on current and important topics to the pump industry, the Hydraulic Institute has collaborated with its NPSH committee members in developing a technical webinar program that focuses on NPSH and its relationship to cavitation and other pump operation. No end user or pump supplier wants to experience the issues associated with lack of NPSH such as increased noise and vibration due to cavitation, beginning of head or efficiency drop, and eventual damage to pump impeller or casing.

Designed for pump distributors, manufacturers and end users, the NPSH webinar instructs participants on how to calculate the available NPSH, understand how insufficient NPSHA will affect pump operation and what NPSH margin is needed to ensure good performance longevity to pump equipment.

Mark Sullivan, HI’s Education & Marketing Director, explains that, “Understanding NPSH margin is critical to ensuring optimum and long-term pump performance,” adding that, “working with HI committee members in developing this webinar that focuses on NPSH is an important achievement as the industry needs education on this topic.”

The one-hour webinar will be conducted Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 1:00pm ET with time allotted for a live Q&A session.  Cost is just $119.00, with HI members receiving an additional 25% discount, along with attending earning 1 PDH credit at conclusion.  HI also offers corporate group webinar site licensing for the lowest prices in training larger groups.

As this live, online session is only offered periodically through this year, the sign up deadline is 12:00pm ET on January 13, 2015.  Registration is open now at: http://estore.pumps.org/Rotodynamic-Pumps-Guidelines-for-NPSH-Margin-Webinar-Session-P597.aspx.
