- Prevents cavitation
- Requires no electrical installation
Samson Vacuum control valve is designed to control the vacuum level and to avoid cavitation in the pump.Read More
The vacuum control valve is installed when the suction line may force the pump to operate below the cavitation limit. Air must then be supplied to the suction side of the pump through the vacuum control valve which is regulated according to the required pressure.
Cavitation arises when the pressure in the pump falls to under the steam pressure for the service liquid, which makes the liquid boiling and steam bubbles arise in the service liquid. Continuous operation will cause serious mechanical damage.
