Wikipedia defines cavitation as: …the formation of vapour cavities in a liquid – i.e. small liquid-free zones (“bubbles” or “voids”) – that are the consequence of forces acting upon the liquid. It usually occurs when a liquid is subjected to rapid changes of pressure that cause the formation of cavities where the pressure is relatively […]

At the Emerson Exchange conference in Austin, Emerson’s Jonathan Vance presented Outgassing and Cavitation: Not So Good Vibrations. Here’s the abstract: Outgassing and cavitation are two of the most common issues associated with control valves. Both phenomena often occur in high pressure drop applications and result in excessive vibration; however, the solutions to combat these […]
