Name the four letter word that pump salesmen least like tohear.NPSHThose four letters strike fear in the hearts of pump salesmen more than any others. Let’s take a quick look at why. The Hydraulic Institute definesNetPositive SuctionHead as follows: “The Net Positive Suction head is the total suction head in feet of liquid absolutedetermined at the suction nozzle and the referred datumless the vapor pressure of the liquid in feet absolute”.After reading this definition, it is no wonder why manypeople become frightened and confused. What this studywill attempt to do is break through the technicaldefinitions, and put this NPSH study into layman’s terms,something everyone can understand. Our goal is for you tohave a working understanding of how NPSH affects apumping application.
You Are Not AloneYou Are Not Alone
Don’t know much about NPSH? You first need torealize that you are not alone, and there is noreason to be embarrassed. I have met seasonedsalesmen, brand new salesmen and engineers alikewho have little to no working knowledge of NPSH. And you can continue to get by this way if you wish, but you will be more valuable to yourcustomers, and more successful if you have acomplete understanding of the products you sell.You will never know everything there is to knowabout pumps, but the real embarrassment shouldbe having the opportunity to learn, and not takingit.
