A Look at Cavitation Problems and How They Affect Bore Pumps

Have you noticed some strange popping sounds coming from your bore pump while in operation? Well, the reason behind these strange sounds could be traced back to a cavitation problem. Simply put, cavitation is the generation of bubbles or cavities in liquid, produced in somewhat low pressure levels close to the impeller. When these bubbles implode or collapse, they elicit shock waves inside the bore pump, damaging the impeller and the pump housing.
