Experimental and Theoretical Investigation on the Effect of Pumped Water Temperature on Cavitation Breakdown in Centrifugal Pumps

Cavitation breakdown at various liquid temperatures is one of the major problems encountered in the operations of centrifugal pumps. There are a number of practical cases where the pumps operate at high temperature or near the saturation temperature of the liquid. A detailed understanding of the fac...
