Correct
Q: What causes cavitation?
A: Cavitation occurs when water changes its state from vapour to water at low pressure.
Correct
Q: What are the effects of cavitation on pumps?
A: Pitting of impeller and pump housing
Correct
Q: Identify the reasons for reduction in pump performance from the given options:
A: Bad power supply
Correct
Q: Which of the following is one correct method to avoid cavitation?
A: Reduce the friction loss in the suction pipe.
Correct
Q: Identify the true statement.
A: If all the parameters are recorded immediately after the pump has been installed, you can use them as benchmark against future data.
